Bruce Boudreau - NHL Ambassador at large

ESPN reports that:

Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau ripped Madison Square Garden and its fans Monday, one day after his Capitals fell to the Rangers 3-2 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

"Well, the one thing, its reputation is far better than the actual building," Boudreau said on 105.9 The Edge's "Kirk and Mike Show," according to The Washington Post. "I mean, it's nothing. The locker rooms are horrible. The benches are horrible. There's no room for anything. But the reputation of being in Madison Square Garden is what makes it famous. Also, our building's a lot louder, too. So I mean, they can say what they want, but it's not that loud in there."

The always tactful Boudreau eventually moved on to other matters:

Boudreau also called Staal's hit on Mike Green in the second period on Sunday "dirty."

"They're coming after him," Boudreau said. "[Brandon] Prust left his feet in the first period and went after the head, as well, and Mike threw a punch back at him."

"Staal comes in, there's no puck and he takes his arm and swings at his head. It's all forgotten, because [Alex Ovechkin scores] a goal to tie the game up," Boudreau said. "It shouldn't be forgotten, and it wasn't the only time they targeted Mike's head.

"That's what we want to get out of the game."

I'd bet the League office, especially the PR department, also wants Boudreau out of the game.
