Green Adjusting To New Stick

from Tarik El-Bashir of Captals Insider,

Mike Green broke the last of his discontinued Easton Stealths—the stick the slick-skating defenseman used to rack up 31 goals and 73 points—early in Game 1 of this series.

For the rest of that game, and the next two, Green said, “I felt like I was stickhandling for the first time again.”

“It takes a couple of games,” Green added, referring to the process of getting used to the feel of the heavier, stiffer Easton S17 stick that he’s using now. “But today I feel back to normal. It’s weird how that happens.”

“It’s a [crappy] time for that to happen,” he said with a laugh, although I could tell he didn’t really think it was funny.
