08:21 AM ET 03.12 | Don't look now, Blackhawks, but the Ducks -- as of Monday carrying the league's most powerful power play, as well as a sparkling 18-3-3 record after winning three straight at home -- are nearing in your rear-view mirror. Two regulation losses by Western Conference-leading Chicago within the week have moved the Ducks to within six points of the Blackhawks. Is [Bruce Boudreau] content to win only the Pacific Division? "I want everything," he said. "I never once thought Chicago was out of range. Everybody else did. We've got a lot of work to do. We've completed half our season. You don't win anything in half a season. Consistency and staying healthy are the keys."

Every time I see a pic of BB, I think back to the early 70s when I watched him play Junior for the Toronto Marlboroughs (not the Marlies, although the team was commonly referred to as Marlies) at the Mecca of hockey, Maple Leaf Gardens.

hard to believe the little butterball today was once one of the most feared scorers in Junior hockey.

2009-10: Boudreau's Caps finish first in league, lose to Montreal in first round.Don't get ahead of yourself, Brucie. You've been down this road before.

regardless, I think that he's proving that he wasn't the problem in Washington. I bet Ovie and co. miss him dearly at this point. No more free-wheeling, no more fun, and no more wins.

The Caps squad flourished under Boudreau. They didn't go the distance, but they were definitely regarded by all as a premier team for many years. Caps hockey was must see tv.

What are they now?

It sucked for Boudreau getting fired, but he proved that wherever he lands he'll be just fine. Seems like all the talent in Washington needed ole Brucie more than he needed them.

I'm happy fpr Bruce and the success he's having. Maybe he'll send McPhee a card thanking him for the chance.

That shouldn't be so difficult. The Hawks will do all they can to cooperate as they started a new streak. ;-)

I thought that was Pittsburgh?

Didn't Burkie call To***to the Vatican?

Better do it now, the window closes when Perry signs with the highest bidder.

No, no, no.....Brian Burke is a scout for the Ducks. Where would they be without his elite recruiting skills??

Exactly. He's in Sweden checking closets and under beds for Monsters as we speak.

Well said.

I was thinking New York. But then again, why would he want to end his career so prematurely?
