Mike Green’s status uncertain
Mike Green reported progress Friday, but the injured Washington Capitals defenseman remained questionable for Saturday afternoon’s game against the New Jersey Devils. Green, who’s officially listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury, has missed the past two games. “You’ve got to play it smart,” Green said. “It’s better I be safe than sorry and be out for longer. We’ve done this right, we’ve done the necessary steps and I feel good. So it’s been a quick turnaround.” Quick enough to allow him to play Saturday remains to be seen. Even if the Caps need him, they understand Green rushing back could have negative long-term ramifications.
