Washington Capitals Fire Bruce Boudreau

Per a team release, the Washington Capitals have parted ways with head coach Bruce Boudreau.  Boudreau had been the head coach of the Capitals for just over four calendar years, winning over 68 percent of his regular season games to go along with four Southeast Division champsionships and a Presidents’ Trophy.  However, Boudreau failed to lead the Capitals to any postseason success, winning a total of 17 playoff games and blowing series leads of 3-1 and 2-0 during his tenure.

Dale Hunter, who had been coaching the London Knights in the Ontario Hockey League, has been named his replacement.
