Mike Green was really trying to give me something to Monday about when he scored two goals in the Caps season opener vs. Chicago. Then both goals were credited to Mikhail Grabovski.
Mike is not used to sharing this MG stuff with anyone.
Mike did have two assists vs. Chicago, plus another two since then and he’s quarterbacking a heck of a power play. The Caps were the NHL’s best power play last season and currently have a league-leading 4 PPG, converting on 44.4% of advantages.
Mike also leads all NHL players in ice time with 84:54 so far this season.
Mike: Guys, what do I have to do here?
Erat: I don’t know, I’m on the 4th line now.
Annie S was at the Caps/Hawks game and took these great pictures for us. She (and I) suggest Mike get back to work because:
- It’s almost our collective birthday (Friday/Saturday).
- They’re playing the Canes on Thursday and Intern Jeff Skinner was first star last night. The competition around this office is fierce.
- @jfrancesw, @thekitchenette and I will be at Saturday’s game vs. Colorado and Gabe is back in the lineup. Don’t let your hair get upstaged.
- Lastly the Oilers come to town on Monday. One week away and I feel like I’ve had a pile of Pixie Stix and a giant Coke.
Okay, I’m focused.
The Caps are 1-2 right now, with their next 3 match-ups vs. teams they should beat. The schedule doesn’t stay easy for long, boys. Take advantage.Tags: mike green, washington capitals
