Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau talks about his first day with the team:
“I had to get their respect right off the bat, so I gave Alex [Ovechkin] crap. It was on the first shift of the first practice and he missed a drill. I pulled him aside in front of the guys and told him he couldn’t do that.
“I knew I had to give it to him before anyone. If all I did was give crap to the nine guys I coached in the minors before, then it would be I was just giving crap to the AHL boys.”
