Tension Between Ovechkin And Bourdreau?

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

“I thought other guys were better than him and I thought there was just a chance that other guys might score the goal,” Boudreau said. “I’ve got to put out the guys that I think are going to score the goal and 99 percent of the time Alex is the guy I think is going to score the goal. I just didn’t think Alex was going to score the goal at that time tonight. You go with your gut feeling, thinking that line is going pretty good and I got lucky.”...

Boudreau said he couldn’t put a finger on what was wrong exactly with Ovechkin. “I don’t know,” Boudreau said. “It just wasn’t working for him.”

But another video clip that was part of the national broadcast of Tuesday’s game, showed Ovechkin on the bench during the timeout the Capitals called during the stoppage in play with 1:02 remaining where the star left wing looked displeased and mutters what appears to be an expletive.

You can see the video clip and judge for yourself here. The instance on the bench begins at the 53 second mark of the video.

This could actually be the point where the capitals can point to that allowed them to win the cup.  Not saying it will happen, but something had to change for them and this is a big deal.  Up to this point, BB has always back OV in every situation.

I guess we will see how it shakes out.

It should be noted that the expletive Ovechkin uses looks to be “Fat f**k”

Oops, I meant Captain Ovechkin.

Fukken lol’d at Ovechkin’s vocal reaction. He’ll be having a few words about that one later on.

Boudreau blows. Not so much in this instance, but all around. Winning the president’s trophy is all fine and dandy, but if you can’t win the cup with that much firepower then you need to f*** off. Take a hint from Bylsma, who had Pittsburgh play way better than Caps during last playoffs, without freakin’ Malkin and Criesby.

I hate Pens, but really, there’s no question as to who has the best coach. So much so that Pens would never have won the cup without Bylsma.
