Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green will not travel with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip due to an upper-body injury sustained Saturday against the New York Islanders, coach Adam Oates told reporters Monday.

Green, who has nine goals and 38 points in 70 games this season, didn't play in the final two periods Saturday.

The Capitals play at the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday and the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday. They are four points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the Eastern Conference's second wild-card berth for the Stanley Cup Playoffs with four games remaining.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.

— Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom in an interview with Washington Post about whether he will be able to play in 2015-16 opener
