Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green scored his long-delayed 100th NHL goal against the Sabres on Tuesday night, and it was nifty.

With the game tied at the halfway point, Green gained possession in the offensive zone. With a growing crowd in Buffalo’s crease, Green carried the puck behind the net before wrapping around for the go-ahead goal.

Green’s quest for 100 has been rebuffed since his two-goal night on January 4th. He’s had a number of goals waved off or credited to a deflection since then– including Alex Ovechkin’s trouser-scoar tonight.

Congrats to Mike, and here’s to the next century.

    Gotta be honest.

    That’s the LAST kind of goal I expected from Greener, but I’ll take it.

    I think Greener just pulled off a Bobby Orr moment there…

    That was awesome. He skated his heart out and played a hell of a game. He looked like a freaking ballerina out there.

    What was with the stupid NBCSN announcers not mentioning or giving any props to Greenie for his 100th NHL goal. I’d even go as far as thinking Doc and Pierre would have at least brought it up… <3 Joe B and Locker 4ever

    Pretty sure Doc would bring it up. He’s classy like that. Pierre would follow it up with an anecdote about Crosby.

    I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure they did mention it.
