Boudreau Talks Ovechkin

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Boudreau said Ovechkin called him after the news of Boudreau’s firing. Boudreau said the two spoke for 15 minutes on Tuesday and the star winger thanked his former coach for his time with the Capitals.

“And I told him I loved him and blah, blah, blah, all the regular stuff,” Boudreau said.

Ovechkin is off to a slow start with just eight goals in 22 games and the team struggling after a 7-0 start.

But Boudreau dismissed the notion that the two were feuding.

“It’s so far from the truth,” Boudreau said. “I we got along, I think, famously.”
