Caps training camp may not be officially underway yet, but almost all the players are now taking part in self-led practices at Kettler Capitals Iceplex (the team can’t hold formal workouts until the CBA terms are finalized). Without coaches leading the drills, these sessions haven’t been particularly riveting. Still, hundreds of fans filed into the rooftop rink to get a glimpse of world-class NHL hockey for the first time in months.

Speaking of world-class NHL hockey, the highlight of the day came when Mike Green got too close to Michal Neuvirth before bulling over the young netminder. Green then got lodged in the net upside down. Man, it’s good to be back.

“I had Lasik eye surgery yesterday so my vision’s a little off,” Green told reporters after the practice. “I didn’t realize he was that close to me. I apologize though.”

Take a look at some pictures of the incident after the jump.

Hey, Green can now play both parts in those Geico caveman ads.

Apparently he didn’t get the “don’t fall” memo.

    I love the new-look, bearded Greenie!

    That hand tat… not a good look. Carly clearly has the most powerful hair on the team currently, followed by Nick, and then MG’s beard.

    Aw, man. It’s even more painful seeing these pics from Chine where I can’t go to KCl to see these hijinks for myself ;_; But MG52’s looking good (if a bit strange).
