Green Hurts Shoulder
Mike Green was wearing a shoulder sling on his right arm after the game. But he said he's hopeful the injury is not too serious. When I asked him if it was sprained or separated, the defenseman said he won't know until the morning.
"It was a good hit," Green said of Chris Pronger's shoulder check that sent him hurtling into the end boards. "I seen him coming, but he's so big I couldn't brace myself. We'll see how it feels tomorrow morning. I'm just trying to keep it still right now. Obviously, it's not too bad, so we'll see how tonight goes."
The injury ruined a night Green had been looking forward to for some time. He grew up a big Scott Niedermayer fan and even asked for his stick after the game.
"I was excited to play to tonight," Green said. "As a young guy, I wanted to show him what I was all about. I was fortunate to get a little tast there on the power play in the first period."
"I got a stick from him," Green said. "It was awesome."
