Capitals Get Goalie Liut From Whalers in Trade

The Washington Capitals, seeking goaltending help for their playoff drive, acquired Mike Liut from the Hartford Whalers in exchange for journeyman left wing Yvon Corriveau on Monday, one day before the NHL trading deadline.

Liut, 34, has a 2.64 goals-against average, second in the NHL to Montreal's Patrick Roy. Corriveau, 23, has nine goals and six assists through 50 games this season.

In other trades, the Buffalo Sabres sent winger Kevin Maguire to Philadelphia for former King defenseman Jay Wells; and the Quebec Nordiques, already eliminated from the playoffs, traded veteran left wing Michel Goulet and goaltender Greg Millen to the Blackhawks for forwards Everett Sanipass and Daniel Vincelette and prospect Mario Doyon.
