Green has been skating hard since Friday morning in Carolina and is nearing areturn after missing five game with a sprained right ankle. The Caps are 2-3-0 inthose games and return to action Tuesday night at home against the DallasStars.Beagle received clearance to begin skating on his own onFriday and may continue that pattern until it is certain he is symptom free, atwhich point he would begin participating in full practices.
