Bruce Boudreau’s Reflects On 9/11

from Dan Myers of Wild.com,

In the 6,210 days since that fateful morning, not one has passed where Bruce Boudreau hasn't thought about what might have been.

It was early September in 2001 when Boudreau, then the head coach of the Los Angeles Kings AHL affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire, hopped in a car and drove with one of his best friends, Ace Bailey, to Lake Placid, New York.

The two were among a host of Kings personnel headed upstate to celebrate the wedding of the daughter of Bill Flaherty, at the time, the Kings' Director of Personnel.

While at the wedding, Andy Murray -- then the Kings head coach -- told Boudreau and his staff to change their flights scheduled for the following Tuesday. Instead, Murray wanted them in Los Angeles on Monday for a coaches dinner.

"I was the American League coach at the time," Boudreau said. "So I was going to do whatever Andy Murray wanted me to."
