Bruce Boudreau on first meeting Alex Ovechkin, the Sergei Fedorov trade, and being fired by George McPhee
Former Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau was fired on Valentine’s Day by Minnesota Wild GM Bill Guerin. It marked the second time Bourdeau, who owns the third-highest winning percentage in NHL history (.576, min. 500 games), has been let go mid-season.
With all that free time on his hands, Gabby shared some more tales about his time in Washington through the media. Boudreau coached Alex Ovechkin during the prime of his career in the NHL and turned the Capitals into a perennial playoff team.
Boudreau opened up during Sportnet’s trade deadline show as well as with Mike Russo of The Athletic.
