Green won't travel on Capitals' road trip

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

As a player, it's obviously a sad day, but to be on the ice with some of those guys and show our respect as both teams did around center ice, it's definitely a nice touch.
