Mike Green Improving The Defensive Side Of His Game

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

The Capitals enter Wednesday’s date with the Toronto Maple Leafs tied for the fourth-best defensive record in the league, and (Mike) Green, according to Boudreau, is a big part of that development.

“I just wish people could see him through my eyes,” said Boudreau, a touch wistfully. “He has been outstanding defensively. So now people are saying, ‘Well, how come you’re not scoring?’ I just told Mike not to change a thing. He’s our best player, game in and game out. When he missed those three games, he was sorely, sorely missed.

“He’s a good player – and he’s matured and he’s done all the things he’s had to do.”...

Green, for his part, is carrying a small but noticeable chip on his shoulder, when it comes to a discussion of his production and contributions.
