Many people are spending this “Cyber-Monday” to search for the perfect gift. Bruce Boudreau, former coach of the Washington Capitals, will instead be looking for a new job.
Team General Manager George McPhee announced today that Boudreau has been let go and replaced with former Capitals’ captain Dale Hunter. The move shouldn’t come as a surprise though, as it has been speculated all season.
Boudreau had great success during the regular season, but never managed to guide his team further than the second round of the playoffs. Washington, who was favored to win the Stanley Cup this year, has struggled as of late. After starting the season with seven straight wins, the Caps have gone 5-9-1. The coach’s message seems to be lost on his players, especially captain Alexander Ovechkin.
