Mike Green, one of the best defensemen to ever wear a Caps uniform, returns to DC tonight. This raises an important question:
Will you "whoop" Mike Green tonight?
— Pat Holden (@pfholden) December 8, 2015
For those who are unfamiliar, here’s a history of the whoop, courtesy of Peerless.
If I happened to be attending the game tonight (spoiler: I’m not), I would be in the “No” crowd. If you do plan to whoop Green, just do so knowing that I disapprove of you, your face, and likely your entire existence.
The hopefully whoop-free game will be brought to you by NBCSN at 7:30 PM.

|Detroit Red Wings||15-8-4||51.6%||101.3||17.2%||81.1%|
Some dudes were banged up, but all indications are everyone is healthy enough to play. The only exception is Brooks Orpik, who last played in the late 80s when Michael Jackson released Man in the Mirror. Per ya bff, Katie Brown:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Beagle – Burakovsky
Laich – Latta – Wilson
Schmidt – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Chorney
Thirty-five years ago today, John Lennon passed away after being shot outside the building where he lived in NYC. Many of his songs remain relevant and poignant to this day, including this one from the 1971 album Imagine.
DET goalie Petr Mrazek has a .969 sv% in two games vs. Caps this year; .944 sv% in career vs. WSH and 1.54 GAA. He's not starting tonight.
