TORONTO | The Capitals just got their doors blown off by the Toronto Maple Leafs. They got beat 7-1, and answers were lacking at Air Canada Centre.
That included general manager George McPhee. Stopped on his way to the bus, McPhee was asked if he could give coach Bruce Boudreau a vote of confidence and decline comment to beat reporters from The Washington Times and The Washington Post.
McPhee did not say there was no vote of confidence, but, as expected, did not want to address the matter.
Reporters requested to speak to McPhee earlier Saturday and were told he would prefer to talk when the team got back to Washington. The Caps play Monday, making Tuesday the logical option for McPhee’s meeting with the media. He has not spoken to the local media at-large since media day on Oct. 6.
The Caps are now in second place in the Southeast Division at 10-7-1 (21 points) but have gone 3-7-1 in their past 11 games.
