Green out again for Capitals

Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green will miss a third straight game with a groin injury.

Green participated in warm-ups for the second straight contest, but is not in the lineup for the Capitals against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Center. Green has two goals and seven points in 14 games for the Capitals this season.

He played in a total of 81 games in the previous two seasons because of a myriad of injuries.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
