Mike Green misses second consecutive practice with twisted ankle

The Capitals are on the ice at KCI for their final practice in Washington before departing Tuesday afternoon for a two-game trip to western Canada, but defenseman Mike Green is not skating with the group.

Green, who has missed two consecutive practices, twisted his right ankle late in the first period Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings on a play when he was hit in the jaw with the puck. On Monday, Green was walking with a pronounced limp but his agent, Craig Oster, was optimistic the defenseman would be ready to play in Edmonton Thursday.

Meanwhile, Sean Collins, who was recalled from Hershey, is on the ice taking part in drills and skating with John Erskine.

Jay Beagle is the only other player not on the ice this morning, which marks the 10th consecutive practice the fourth-line winger has missed since suffering a concussion when he was knocked out by Pittsburgh’s Arron Asham on Oct. 13.
