Entering his 10th season in Washington, Mike Green is being asked to kill more penalties this season.
The Capitals lost Jay Beagle but found a way to pull out a win in Montreal,
Braden Holtby and Justin Peters combined for a shutout, Joel Ward scored the go-ahead goal and Brooks Laich added an empty net goal to seal the preseason win over Montreal.
The Capitals are the midway point of their preseason schedule. Braden Holtby could get a full game tonight.
