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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
