Back-to-backs not a big deal to Capitals
Question of the Day
Back to 100 percent after ankle and groin injuries derailed much of his regular season, Mike Green didn’t seem to mind that he wasn’t producing offensively. The defenseman said last week this was the best he has felt in two years.
“There’s not that pressure that you have to score and that’s the bottom line,” he said. “I think that it’s about playing solid and playing your position and Dale enforces that.”
Sunday in Game 6, Green finally broke through. Making a play Caps fans are used to seeing, he controlled the puck in open space and fired a shot that deflected off the Bruins‘ Greg Zanon and past Tim Thomas.
It was his first goal since Oct. 22 and his third point in 30 games under Hunter.
• Center Mathieu Perreault was scratched for the second straight game. He was slashed late in Game 4 on Thursday, but Hunter insisted Perreault was “fine.”
• One game after Michal Neuvirth returned to backup duty for the Caps, Tuukka Rask returned to the bench for Boston. He had been out with a groin/lower abdominal injury.
