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

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
