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

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
