Stick It in the Hall

Green donates record-breaking stick to Hall of Fame

WASHINGTON -- Mike Green has changed his mind and decided to let the Hockey Hall of Fame have his record-breaking stick.

The Washington Capitals defenseman will donate the stick that served him so well during his eight-game goal-scoring streak to the Hall of Fame. The streak was the longest by a defenseman in NHL history. Green leads all defenseman with 22 goals entering Wednesday night.

Green had been reluctant to part with the stick, calling it the best one he's ever used. It accounted for all 10 goals in his eight-game spree, including the record-breaker in the second period of Saturday night's 5-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Hopefully the player was more responsible for the streak than the stick.
