Mike Green Is All Smiles

The Washington Capitals turned in another complete 60 minute effort last night and beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-0. It may have been more helpful for a game like this about eight months ago, but it certainly doesn’t hurt their recovery from the recent eight game winless streak as they climb to 4-0-1 in the five games since they got that monkey off their back.  Mike Green was all smiles after scoring in the first period and Alex Ovechkin didn’t look exactly thrilled to score his empty netter late in the third, but like a win is a win, a goal is a goal, and seeing Ovechkin on the scoresheet is nice, indeed.

You know the drill…read about the game from people that know how to write about games like Russian Machine Never Breaks, On Frozen Blog, and Japer’s Rink and just look at the pretty pictures while you’re here or see them on flickr.
