They found Mike Green!

Phew, we can stop worrying he’s lying face down in a roadside ditch, a smouldering Vespa 50 feet away.

The Washington Post reports that the injured Capitals defenseman is “out of town visiting with a specialist, presumably about the strained right groin muscle that has held him out of the lineup for 14 consecutive games.”

Caps coach Dale Hunter says Green is day to day and “getting better,” though he wasn’t willing to put any time frame on a return.

    Our national nightmare is over.

    I want to be hopeful that he’ll be back in the lineup soon, but… seems like he doesn’t get more than a half-dozen games in between injuries these days anyway.

    Is Tom Poti with him?
