Former Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau gave the following statement while in conversation with Comcast SportsNets Chick Hernandez:
"The support from the people has been unbelievable. I can't thank the fans enough. They made this bearable. Losing your job is never easy.
"My wife and I love the D.C. Area. I can see myself, if I never get another job, coming back and staying here forever."
