Bruce Boudreau’s First Ducks Game

First published on Japers Rink. When I first heard the news of Coach Bruce Boudreau’s firing from the Washington Capitals, I cursed my fortune to pick that week to go to Anaheim for my day job. As it happens, I was in the right place at the right time to witness the first game of […]

[…]
