Caps defenseman suspended three games
NEW YORK (AP)
Green hit Connolly in the head while Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov had the Lightning forward pinned against the boards in the second period of Washington's 3-2 overtime victory Thursday night. Connolly stayed down on the ice for a bit, then was taken toward the locker room. He returned before the end of the period.
No penalty was called on the play.
The suspension will cost Green $85,135.
