Snow Day, Not Fun Day: Mike Green Skates, Suspended for Three Games

Dcsnow ARLINGTON, Va. -- Greetings from Runway 4 at Ron Reagan Jr. Washington interNational Airport where I have been stuck on the runway along with Steve X. for the past few hours.

Seems that the snow storm we were all anticipating finally hit. When I say all, I mean everyone except for the airport crew that was supposed to clear the runway.

So here we sit.

A few miles away at the Capitals practice complex, our pal Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post reports that Mike Green (knee) came out to skate at the end of the Caps practice.

Green left Friday's game after getting hit hard by Dmitry Kulikov. The two collided and smacked knees. Green did not return to the game.

Regardless of his knee, Green will miss the Caps' next three games for what he did in the first period.

Green's elbow of Michael Frolik cost him two minutes in the box, and I don't know if he felt shame or what. But he's been suspended for it after having a disciplinary meeting with the league earlier this morning.

For what it's worth, Green did offer an apology for the elbow after last night's game.

If you want to keep up with Green and all the latest Caps news, follow Tarik on Twitter.


You can also follow me on Twitter as well. Talking about the snow all day!


-- As far as the Panthers go, they are scheduled to skate at Incredible Ice today at noon. I have Pete "Pete" Pelegrin covering and if anything happens, I will update. I don't see myself leaving this runway anytime soon. At least they have Biscotti. For now.

I wouldn't be surprised if David Booth says he's playing tomorrow. He looked like he was ready to go last night and with Pete as ticked off as he was, he might just let him.
