Morning jam: Overnight game facts
By Elias Sports Bureau
• Mike Green's power-play goal with 5:48 remaining in the third period snapped a 2-2 tie and the Capitals preserved their one-goal lead for a 3-2 victory in Game 4 of their series against the Rangers. It was the first game-winning goal of the veteran defenseman's playoff career. Green led all NHL defensemen with 12 game-winning goals over a three-season span from 2007-08 through 2009-10 (four GWGs each season), but he has scored only one game-winner in each of two injury-plagued seasons since then.
