No Green, Brouwer for Capitals at morning skate

The Washington Post is reporting the Washington Capitals had nine defensemen on the ice for Tuesday morning's practice, but Mike Green was not among them.

Green sat out the March 2 game at the Winnipeg Jets due to a groin injury, and the newspaper is reporting it's unlikely he plays Tuesday against the visiting Boston Bruins.

The Post also is reporting that forward Troy Brouwer was not on the ice Tuesday morning due to illness, putting his availability for Tuesday's game in question.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
