Caps defenseman, and great hair icon, Mike Green should probably stick to the scoring (three goals already in the series) and forget about the fighting. He got into it last night with Philly’s Scottie Upshall. It was the first fight of the series, and exactly zero punches were landed:
Lame, I know. There’s probably a reason for that: Green never fights. The last time he dropped the gloves, according to the always reliable Hockey Fights, was on Dec. 31, 2005 in the AHL.
We must, however, give Green credit for stirring things up. The Caps were getting completely owned, so something had to be done. But based on how the rest of the game went, that “something” apparently wasn’t Mike Green starting a fight.
