"The only defenceman for the Washington Capitals is [Mike] Green and and he should win the Norris because he has no help on the blueline. Milan Jurcina is the second highest scoring defenceman on the Capitals with 14 points and the Bruins gave him away. Tom Poti is the third highest scoring defenceman with 13 points. Green is +24 on a team without a goaltender."

"Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin is piling up the points but doesn't seem to be piling up support in the Hart Trophy race. "In USA TODAY's latest NHL Power Rankings vote, Malkin is ranked No. 2 to the Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin for MVP, even though he has a 10-point lead in the scoring race. ... "In USA TODAY balloting, Ovechkin received 10 of 11 first-place votes. The New Jersey Devils' Zach Parise got the other."

Green earned Third Star honors for the second consecutive week after posting seven points (four goals, three assists) and becoming the first NHL defenseman in nearly 25 years to score a goal in six consecutive games. He notched one goal and one assist in a 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils Feb. 3, tallied another one-goal, one-assist effort in a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings Feb. 5 and concluded the week with two goals and one assist in a 3-1 win over the Florida Panthers Feb. 7. Green's current six-game goal-scoring streak is the longest by an NHL defenseman since Ray Bourque's six-game streak for Boston in March, 1984 and is one shy of the League record for blueliners set by the Bruins' Mike O'Connell in January, 1984. Green's 19 goals and 47 points lead all defensemen this season.
