1st NHL casualty this season: Bruce Boudreau in Washington

Bruce Boudreau

And we have our first coaching change in the NHL to report.

The Washington Capitals have sacked Bruce Boudreau after 22 games and replaced him with Dale Hunter.

The Caps, who have been one of the best teams in Hockey during the regular season under Boudreau have struggled when it comes to closing it out. Despite featuring Alexander Ovechkin among others, they've been unable to take home Lord Stanley's Cup.

This season, the Caps were 12-9-1, tied for 8th best in the East. Boudreau has been at the helm since Thanksgiving in 2007.

Their next game is Tuesday night at home against St. Louis.

All this after a less than stellar performance against the Buffalo Sabres...
Just ask Alan May...
((HT: CSNWashington))
