Mike is currently in detention, serving his 3-game ban for a hit to the head. He spoke to reporters yesterday [video link] and was pretty contrite about it. This is a classy way to disagree with a ruling but still take your lumps.
Well handled, Mr. Green.
Roman Hamrlik has replaced Mike in the last two games, and the Caps have won both. Unrelated, yes. But lucky too because it takes away some of the sting when this could have put the Caps in a really bad spot.
Hopefully the Caps can get past the Islanders tomorrow night, then Mike will be back for Friday’s game in Winnipeg. Super important stuff.
Can I be honest for a moment? I got distracted by how completely effing perfect he is. Didn’t hear a word he said, had to watch it
again and again. WUYS is on such a boy band-esque sugar high today that we need a slumber party full of pillow fights and ice cream. You’re all invited and Mike would definitely attend.
