Brooks Laich joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan and touched on what’s been clicking during the Capitals’ three-game win streak and how difficult it is for him to deal with the loss of defenseman Mike Green for another four to six weeks.
Green is scheduled to undergo surgery for a right groin injury Tuesday and for Laich, it’s still odd not having him out there during an injury riddled 2012.
“I don’t think you ever get used to going out there without him,” Brooks Laich said. “He’s just had a tough go of it. He’s just unfortunate with the injuries and just unlucky,” he added.
Laich also said that he along with his teammates have been doing their best to raise Green’s spirits around the locker room and clubhouse.
