Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green suffered an upper-body injury during Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders and is questionable to return, according to the Washington Post’s Katie Carrera.

So far, Green has not; it seemed that he was banged-up in the first period and didn’t return at least early in the middle frame. PHT will keep an eye out for updates on the 28-year-old blueliner (who is no stranger to injury woes).

Carrera notes that the Islanders were physical with the scoring defenseman:

      A mangina is a man who cannot stand up to a woman….which likely describes you, in probability.

        NO…In reality it perfectly describes Mike Green

        And why 95% of DC can not wait for this guy to be gone

    As I suspected, no mention that, in his first game back from a concussion, Michael Grabner took a Mike Green elbow to the face as he was shooting, bloodying Grabner’s nose and ultimately ending his night in the first period.
