Ilya Samsonov won his fourth rehab start for the Hershey Bears on Friday.
Samsonov stopped 25 of 28 shots in Hershey’s 6-3 win over the Binghamton Devils. The Russian goaltender is trying to regain his top form after testing positive for coronavirus in mid-January and spending 19 days in protocol fighting the disease.
A closer look at the highlights reveals a porous Bears defense in front of the net on all three Binghamton goals.
Samsonov also stopped a penalty shot.

It’s unclear what’s next for Sammy. The Bears play again Saturday at Giant Center while the Capitals play both back-to-back games this weekend against the New Jersey Devils.
Special note: Garrett Pilon scored a highlight-reel goal on a power move to the net.
