Green skated off under his own power but wobbly with 6:43 left in the period after being checked at the end boards by Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner. Green was down for about a minute before heading to the dressing room.
He came back and sat on the bench during a stoppage in play three minutes later then got up and left with a member of the Capitals training staff.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
