Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau has been stuck on 199 career wins for a week now.
It probably feels more like a month.
Capitals defenseman Mike Green did not practice with the team on Monday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex and will not join the team on its 4 p.m.
Unless there is a surprise transaction later today, the Capitals will embark on their three-game road trip Monday afternoon without the aid of a defensive callup from the AHL Hershey Bears.
On the front side of a home-and-home set with the Devils, the Capitals had to go the extra mile for a victory.
