Green Has Goal, Assist In Caps' 4-1 Win Over Hawks
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mike Green had a goal and an assist, and Michal Neuvirth stopped 28 shots as the Washington Capitals beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 on Sunday night in the preseason finale for both teams.

Corey Crawford had 32 saves for the Blackhawks (2-4-1).

Washington's Mathieu Perreault made it 1-0 by poking in the rebound of Green's shot at 11:18 of the first period. Brooks Laich made it 2-0 five minutes later.

Marian Hossa cur the Blackhawks' deficit in half less than a minute later when he knocked in his own rebound during a power play.

Chicago's Peter LeBlanc received a match penalty for a hit to the head of Capitals forward Alexander Semin at 12:37 of the third period. A slashing penalty on Hossa gave the Caps a 5-on-3 advantage, and Green beat Crawford with just over 3 minutes to play.

Jay Beagle added a short-handed, empty-net goal.
