Filip Forsberg sends a wrister past the goalie during the third period against the Flyers. Later on with the game tied and under a minute to go, Forsberg finds the net again for the game-winning goal.
Green knows he is coming off the worst season of his career and is only a few years removed from missing the entire 2011-12 season after undergoing heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic to repair an aortic root aneurysm. He says he doesn’t dwell on the past and the “road blocks” he hit in Orlando, but he acknowledges that this season can serve as a reminder of the type of talent he has.
“It’s proving to everybody,” Green said. “Everybody has their opinions of what Jeff Green should be or what I can do, but I have to go out there and prove it to myself that I work hard and I put in the work to be in the position I’m in. So I got to go out there and do it.”
He’s happy to do it in a city that gave him a second chance once before already.
“It saved my life,” Green said of the Cleveland Clinic. “It saved my life. When you think about it, it’s a place that gave me new life, and hopefully this year it can give me a refresher on my career. So I guess Cleveland is a city for me that brings a lot of newness to my life. We’ll see at the end of this year — in June — what that turns out to be.”
