Capitals defenseman Mike Green leaves game
Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green is questionable for the remainder of the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

COLUMBUS -- Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green did not return to the game Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets after leaving in the first period.

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.

Columbus defeated Washington, 5-2.

Green scored his 100th NHL goal Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
