A guy like Green can definitely make up for his lapses with his offensive play, but those numbers are definitely skewed quite a bit by the forward lines that generally play with him...

As far as specific defensive assignments and gameplans, it really is dependent on the opponent at this point. Montreal has been physical enough on Green and guys like Backstrom and Semin, but have done a great job being aggressive on the PK. If we draw the Bruins, pushing around Chara won't accomplish much (), but I feel like it's a team we can skate with rather than chase around the ice as it would be with the Capitals.

Of course, no more talking about a potential choke for Washingon! Their losses have come with us assuming they're going to win, keep doing that!
