-- Cap D-man Mike Green declared himself ready to return to action against the Jets after missing 10 straight with a groin injury, but coach Adam Oates wasn't ready to make that commitment just yet. "Obviously we need Mike. We've got to make sure he is ready. I know he wants to play," Oates told The Washington Post. "I know he wants to play, but we've gone down this path before. He was ready to play last time and it lasted two days."

Green has missed 93 of the Capitals' last 193 regular-season games due to an assortment of hurts.
