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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
