Former Washington Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau joined Mike and Holden today in one of his first interviews since his firing and opened up about his time in D.C. and the end of his coaching days here.
Boudreau regrets not getting to the Stanley Cup with this team and said “obviously, that is something is going to bug me…but that team will get there. People sometimes doubt them, but they’re going to bounce back. They’re in a rut right now, and Dale will get them going”
Boudreau understands why he was fired and knew it was a hard thing for General Manager George McPhee to do. “I knew it was a tough decision for George, but I think he had to do it at the time. We were struggling, and I didn’t think we were getting better, and I told him that.”
Boudreau also talked about his relationship with Alex Ovechkin, including the benching a few weeks ago, which he stands by because the team won the game.
