This is so Capitals.
All season long, the Washington Capitals have had recurring momentary lapses in judgement in which they forget how to hockey. That’s why the Caps won’t be making the playoffs for the first time in six years, and now I’ve got a drinking problem.
On Saturday at Nassau Coliseum, Mike Green and Jason Chimera illustrated how to do the worst breakout ever. Instead of establishing possession and exiting the defensive zone, they crashed into each other full speed right in front of their own goal.
That’s Jason Chimera and Mike Green, scaring the heck out of Braden Holtby.
So that looks really painful.
This comes two weeks after Alex Ovechkin and Jack Hillen crashed at center ice. Hillen, out with a, uh, body injury, has still not returned to game action.
Mike Green is questionable to return to the game.
#Caps Mike Green sustained an upper body injury and is questionable to return. Aaron Volpatti is expected to return in the 2nd period.

Chimera seems okay aside from a pesky cut above his right eye.
Can we please stop doing things like this?
