Boudreau Named Head Coach of Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals Coach Bruce BoudreauFor Bruce Boudreau, the title Interim Head Coach was, itself, interim. After just 14 games at the helm of the Washington Capitals–during which the team has earned 17 points–the team made it official today by removing that pesky “interim” from his title: Boudreau is now the Head Coach, 14th in team history.
Boudreau’s positive impact on the team was quickly evident as the Capitals, losers of five straight at the time, marched into Philadelphia to beat the Flyers 4-3 for Boudreau’s first game behind the bench. While the team has had its highs and lows since as Boudreau changes the system and mindset of the team, the players’ increased energy and improved discipline speak well of the Head Coach’s influence.

    That was fast. Not that I disagree with it. I wonder if GMGM was waiting to see how the team responded to him first before lifting the “interim” tag.

    Classic. Only in this town. When you think about it, every coach in the NHL is “interim” until they start losing. “Coach” can probably suffice.
