VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Travis Green thinks the Vancouver Canucks can learn a thing or two from how the Washington Capitals played against them Monday night.

Vancouver's head coach said the Capitals came out fast and strong in the 5-2 win, showcasing highly skilled athletes who consistently make plays.

"They don't just go out there and just play summer hockey. They play the game the right way," Green said. "These are valuable experiences and lessons for our players, our young players especially."
