Capitals Name Bruce Boudreau Head Coach - Remove "Interim" From His Title

From the press release:

"ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have named Bruce Boudreau the team's head coach, removing 'interim' from his title, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. The Capitals are 7-5-3 since Boudreau was named interim head coach on Nov. 22.

"Boudreau, 52, has coached championship teams in the American Hockey League (AHL) and the ECHL and has coached more than 1,000 games in the minor leagues. He led the Hershey Bears, Washington's AHL affiliate, to the Eastern Conference championship and the Calder Cup finals in each of his first two years in Hershey, winning the Calder Cup in 2006. Boudreau compiled a 103-45-11-16 record with the Bears (a .666 winning percentage), including an AHL-best 51-17-6-6 record (.713) last season.

"Washington's seven wins and 17 points under Boudreau exceed the team's total from prior to his appointment (6-14-1). Offensively the Capitals have averaged nearly a goal per game more under Boudreau ( 3.0 to 2.2) and have seen significant improvements on both the power play and penalty kill."
