from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,
Mike Green will likely miss the Capitals’ game against the San Jose Sharks Tuesday at Verizon Center after he was struck by a puck near his right ear and temple area on Sunday against the Penguins. The defenseman, who was hit by a slap shot in the first period of Washington’s 3-0 win and required multiple rows of stitches to close a cut on the side of his head, cited wooziness and headaches—symptoms that are consistent with a concussion—when he talked to reporters after suffering the injury.
Green was held out of practice Monday for precautionary reasons, Coach Bruce Boudreau said, adding that Green would be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
