Green out for Capitals' game Saturday

Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates told the Washington Post that defenseman Mike Green will not play Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets due to a groin injury.

Green missed three games late last month with a groin injury but returned to play more than 21 minutes in the Capitals' back-to-back games against the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 26 and the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 27.

In 16 games this season, Green has two goals and five assists.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
