Capitals Green suspended three games

Caps defenseman Mike Green was suspended three games by the NHL for an illegal head shot on Tampa Bay forward Brett Connolly during Thursday's game. 

Green, a seven-year veternan, has been both fined and suspended for illegal hits in the past.

Deserves every second of that suspension. I think it's fair, as while it was targeted I don't think it was malicious. Good suspension.
