Mike Green Is on the Ice

Defenseman Mike Green, as expected, is on the ice for the morning skate here at RBC Center. He missed the final minutes of Thursday's game in Tampa after suffering a ribcage strain/bruise, but he appears to be participating fully right now. It's still unclear whether he'll be available to play tonight.

Meantime, it looks like Jose Theodore will be the starting goaltender against the 'Canes, who rallied to beat the Isles, 5-4, last night.

I'll have more after the skate.

That's the FIRST good news we've heard in a while.

A shame the Isles couldn't have hung on... if they had, the Caps could have clinched a playoff berth tonight with a regulation win over Carolina. Ah well. It'll happen soon enough. I'm hoping they can clinch the division Friday vs. Tampa.

That's great news! Just hope he doesn't overexert himself.

Anything new on Quint?

At least he's (Green) skating this morning! I have more confidence in the Caps' ability to beat Carolina with Green than without him. About our losses to Carolina. One was, of course, during our slump. While the other loss, in Dec, we were without Semin (along with some other people, including Green).

Hope that means Green can go tonight.

Any word on Brash?

I hope Carolina used up all their juice in their comeback against the Islanders and have nothing left against us. It IS hard to have passion in back to back games. I hope that holds true for Carolina also.

The Caps need to jump on these guys from the first puck drop and sustain the pressure.

Carolina expended a lot of energy in their win against NY. This s likely going to be another close game but the Caps have the advantage of fresher legs.

I'm with you guys on the Caps beating down on the Canes the instant the game starts. =) Take cares, Greenie! Let's GOO Caps!
