Mike Green was in on both of Washington's goals in the Capitals' important 2-1 victory Sunday over the Red Wings in Detroit.

The veteran defenseman picked up his 35th assist of the season on the game's opening goal, scored at 3:39 of the first period by Evgeny Kuznetsov. It was a power-play goal and Kuznetsov's 11th of the season. Green then made it 2-0 at 4:42 of the second period with his 10th goal of the season. Superstar Alex Ovechkin grabbed an assist on Green's goal, his 28th assist of the season. With the win, the Caps moved closer to toward clinching a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Washington (44-25-11), second in the Metropolitan Division, one point ahead of the New York Islanders, will clinch if the Ottawa Senators lose to the Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday night.

Mike Green (upper body) will miss Wednesday's game.

The good news is that Green was able to participate in Wednesday's practice. "Just making sure everything is intact so I can play properly," he said. "We’ll give it a couple days. It was good to push it to see where it’s at. It’s nothing serious, it’s a matter of getting it strong and healthy. The mobility and strength isn't there." Look for Nate Schmidt to be inserted into the lineup.

Mike Green is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Green is considered day-to-day as a result. He has five goals and 38 points in 58 contests in 2014-15. He hasn't been ruled out for Wednesday's contest, but Nate Schmidt has been summoned on an emergency basis to serve as an insurance policy. The presence of Schmidt is particularly useful given that after he arrived, fellow defenseman Brooks Orpik sustained a lower-body injury.

The Capitals are unlikely to trade Mike Green prior to the March 2 deadline, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Green is an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. He means too much for the Capitals, who have designs on making noise in the playoffs, and it would probably be difficult for them to find a player who fit his puck-moving mold. Green has 36 points in 51 games this season.
