Mike Green says he expects to play in regular season finale

Defenseman Mike Green participated fully in the Capitals’ practice this morning, and when asked if the plan remained for him to play in the regular-season finale at Florida tomorrow, he responded, “Absolutely.”

Green said he felt “Great, pretty much 100 percent. Just a matter of getting back in shape here for the game...It will be good to get out there and get that feel back and have a couple days to practice and get in better shape for games. ”

Asked about his conditioning level Green said he was “about 90 percent” but that the biggest factor is just getting back in a game.

“I think the conditioning is there, it’s getting your feel back for the puck in game situations,” Green said. ”I think a period and it will come back — you never really lose it.”
