In Red Wings Land
Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after Green is able to skate with stops and starts, it should be about a week before Green can play.
Green said he did do stops and starts Saturday and it felt okay.
”It did, yeah. I’m just gonna kind of make sure that I don’t have any setbacks,” Green said. “Yesterday and today I haven’t, so it’ll be like Blash said, about a week.”
The Red Wings are significantly better with Mike Green in the lineup, so this is good news.
Around the League
Team U.S.A falls 3-2 in the championship game. Future Red Wing Kaapo Kakko scored the go-ahead goal with just over 90 seconds remaining. Pretty impressive work by the U.S in this year’s tournament and the last decade.
