10:39 AM ET 01.21 | When the Washington Capitals fired Bruce Boudreau two months ago, they weren't the only ones who needed a fresh start. In Southern California, Boudreau has found an opportunity to take what he learned from his first stint as an NHL coach and apply it. He was able to return to trusting his own instincts, which the 57-year-old acknowledged he questioned toward the end of his tenure with the Capitals.

His biggest mistake was trying to make Ovie a two way player.

The Ducks needed the change - they'd become immune to Carlyle's abrasive shenanigans. Smart move to extend Beauchemin. All the pieces are there.

Back to his old ways? So, I guess this means a first round playoff elimination for the Ducks.

Playoffs? Did you say Playoffs ?

who doesn't make mistakes? I've never met a coach that's left one job and gone to another that hasn't reflected on the previous one to try to improve themselves. Complete non story.
