Mike Green expected to miss at least the next two games

While Dennis Wideman provides defensive depth for the Capitals, the uncertain health of both Mike Green and Tom Poti makes him an even more important addition. Green, who is in Calgary with his family following the death of his grandmother, will likely miss the next two games, but Coach Bruce...

Capitals Coach Bruce Boudreau on Dennis Wideman trade: 'I think it's a great pickup'

Newly-acquired defenseman Dennis Wideman is a right-handed shot -- something in short supply on the Capitals' blue line. The six-year veteran, acquired from Florida in exchange for prospect Jake Hauswirth and this year's third-round draft pick, is a puck-moving defenseman who can help Washington's speed and transition game, particularly with...

Capitals' penalty kill continues to shine

As much of the attention, albeit negative, is squarely on the Washington Capitals' sagging power play, that most frustrating deficiency has been counterbalanced somewhat by the team's torrid penalty killing. Washington has killed off 22 of 23 power plays, including 16 in a row, and is ranked second in the...

Mike Green: 'There's a bit of hate' between Capitals, Penguins

This likely won't come as a surprise to anyone -- especially after seeing Wednesday's '24/7' finale -- but Capitals defenseman Mike Green didn't have much nice to say about the Penguins when he called into The LaVar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes on Thursday afternoon. Pointing out that a...

Caps fall to Penguins, 3-2, in shootout

It's hard to feel like the seventh round of a shootout was a fitting ending to what was 65 minutes of playoff-style hockey, with the Capitals and Penguins exchanging a multitude of hits and exciting plays (even if there weren't seven goals in this one). But that's the way it...

Mike Green and his defensive agenda

Without Tom Poti in the lineup Monday against the Senators there was a considerable chunk of even strength and penalty killing minutes to be picked up by someone, or a combination of someones on the Capitals roster. Throughout the Capitals 3-2 overtime win, that responsibility fell largely to Mike Green,...
