The Washington Capitals scored on two consecutive shots in the first period of Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Wild. First, Marcus Johansson cleaned up a rebound to convert a power play. Then, just thirteen seconds later, Mike Green pulled a stellar move to dodge Matt Cooke before ripping a wrister past Minnesota’s Niklas Backstrom.

Cooke is going to see that move in his dreams tonight. Wait, do pylons even dream?

    It almost seemed like he finally managed to get out of his own head for a bit and because he got out of his own head he was finally able to just use his instincts and score. Great play Greenie.

    It was just beautiful.

    This is why you keep him in Washington, right? I like his play since he’s been paired with Orlov.

    He was even better with Schmidt!

    do we not talk about his defense now?

    He gets a few more points and everyone forgets how terrible he’s been on defense… Yet again he failed to do his job on an odd man rush…. You block the pass, the goalie gets the shooter….. don’t slide by trying to decide…. Jesus.
