Latest Dennis Wideman Items
It was a long 20 days for Mike Green. He missed six games and plenty of practices.
Starting at shortstop, err, defenseman for the Washington Capitals, No. 6, Dennis Wideman. OK, maybe Brooks Laich should explain.

Alex Ovechkin's stat sheet Tuesday night was not a terrible one: the primary assist on the Capitals' game-winning goal and four shots in 17:51 of ice time. But it was the clutch situation that Ovechkin was not a part of — with Washington trailing by one — and his response that drew loads of attention and criticism from national analysts.
Even the day after the Capitals' seven-game, season-opening winning streak ended, there were smiles and plenty of positivity around a first-place team that knew it just ran into some tough breaks and a hot goaltender.
The first goal Tomas Vokoun allowed was a bad one. He admitted as much. The second was a rebound goal after he made the first stop. The third? Vokoun said he never saw it.
Brooks Laich was very clear about what it would take for the Washington Capitals to beat the Vancouver Canucks.

Mike Green was still limping around Wednesday. Even worse was that he was limping around after not taking part in the Washington Capitals' practice at Rexall Place.
