Former Capitals defenseman Mike Green usually is a lover, not a fighter. Hence why I was surprised to see Green jump head first into an angry line brawl during the waning moments of Wings/Bolts Game Two.

Saturday night, former Capital and Winter Classic Hero Troy Brouwer will return to Verizon Center for the first time since being traded to the Blues for TJ Oshie. Which is why several hours earlier it was completely appropriate that two other former Caps, Eric Fehr and Mike Green, played against each other.

Green and Fehr both scored. Both players were on the ice for both goals, and both goals were ugly.

Mike Green Scores First Goal with Detroit Red Wings

On Friday night, a player by the name of Mike Green scored his first goal with the Detroit Red Wings. He did not use an Easton Stealth CNT stick.

Early in the second period against the Pacific Division leading Kings, Green snapped a 1-1 tie by skating into the slot to collect a rebound and firing the puck past Jhonas Enroth. It was typical aggressive Mike Green hockey. After the tally, Green broke into a smile before being hugged by his teammates, who are not Washington Capitals. Green had spent his entire 10-year career with the Caps before signing a three-year, $18-million deal with the Wings this offseason. Battling an injury for part of the season, he had previously six point in 13 games for Detroit.

“I’ve been kind of concentrating on trying to shoot the puck more and, you know, at least get something created,” Green told reporters after Detroit’s 3-2 victory. “So it felt good today.”
