Mikey Monday

10 Jan

Dawn’s talking about the Pens, I’m talking about the Caps – it’s like Freaky Friday in here. (Okay, maybe not.)

Ovi: Do you see Dawn? She's watching the Pens, isn't she? It's the hair. Mike: Er, um... this isn't where I parked my scooter.

There are days when you’re the guy, and days when you aren’t.  Mike Green was definitely the guy in the Caps’ Saturday night win over Florida.  First, he made this pass to Eric Fehr from behind the net to tie the game 1-1. [Video]  I’m trying to find the replay from above so you can see how tight this pass is – you couldn’t get a Vespa through there.

Then he took a pass from Fehr to get this go-ahead goal in the second.  This is a goal-scorer’s goal, getting to the sweet spot between four defenders and dumping it into the net. [Video]

Ta very much.

Mike was the broadcaster’s Player of the Game and he deserved it – 1 goal, 1 assist, 5 shots.  The Caps have won 6 of their last 8, even while struggling with goal production (2.2/game over that stretch).  Note: I DO NOT LIKE when they win a lot. But they need consistent production from guys like Green and Fehr to put Ws on the board.  They play Florida again on Tuesday.

And, as any publicist would suggest, Mike fixed his hair up to talk about his performance.  That might even be a clean shirt. [Video]

Bend and snap.

Mike’s ice time is down a bit lately (24:10 or less in last 4 games), but his point production is up: 2 goals and 3 assists in the last 5 games.  For an offensive defenseman, that’s a pretty fair trade.

    Defensive forward, offensive defenseman – is there a difference? *confused*

    Actually, Ovi is saying, “Hey, this totes hot chick is coming to see me in SJ, jealous dude?” Mike is like, “When’s Nicky coming over for movie night again?”
    Almost a month and counting. I’m making a bracelt to match my necklace … photos coming for a post! 😉

      I’m sorry but who is the background of the Mike Green picture has moobs? Is that Backstrom? Because at this level of athlete, get thee to the gym – seriously, he has a bigger rack than me. NOT GOOD. Maybe that’s why point production is down.
