Mike Green Saw A Sports Psychologist After Game 7 Meltdown

There are a lot of things a person can do after dealing with major professional failure. They can turn inward and do some sole-searching on how it happened. They can seek out peers for advice. They can talk to their co-workers about what they can do to prevent that failure from happening.

Or, they could seek professional help, something many athletes probably do, but few admit. Mike Green, however, freely admitted that's exactly how he decided to deal with the Capitals' shocking Game 7 loss to the Canadiens. During an interview with NBC's Lindsay Czarniak, Green said that he saw a sports psychologist over the summer in hopes of better preparing him for playoff hockey, which has not gone well for him in the last two years.

Who knows whether it'll work, but you have to love Green and his teammates leaving no stones unturned in trying to get past that disappointment.
