The Capitals' reputation as a team that can't get it done in the playoffs is well-established. Here's a look at how each playoff exit happened, with some help from ex-coach Bruce Boudreau.
Now years and thousands of miles removed from his own glory days with the Washington Capitals, all Bruce Boudreau can do sometimes is prepare and hope. He has Anaheim in the playoffs in just his second year behind the bench, but he knows a regular-season turnaround like he authored in Washington isn't enough.
The Washington Capitals were on the clock to find a new coach since May 14. They needed a replacement for Dale Hunter, but general manager George McPhee was in no rush.
Everyone knew the Washington Capitals needed a different approach when Dale Hunter announced he wasn't returning. Defensive, shot-blocking hockey had some success, and Bruce Boudreau's previous style of run-and-gun hockey had a little, too.
The Norfolk Admirals just returned home from Toronto on Monday after capturing the American Hockey League's Calder Cup, and more celebrations are set for Wednesday. So coach Jon Cooper has been a little busy.
If you're looking for the face of the Washington Capitals these days, check out Matt Hendricks' mug. After doing battle with the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night, Hendricks pointed to a bright red welt on his left cheek and said, "That's [the work of] a stick." Then he pointed to his right ear, equally rosy — and possibly in need of stitches — and said, "That's a puck."
Ryan Getzlaf scored 4:03 into overtime to give the Anaheim Ducks a 2-1 victory over the Capitals and send Washington to its seventh straight loss.
Last season Alex Ovechkin lost his center and mentor at the trade deadline, days after losing his other linemate to injury.
