To watch the feature on Bruce Boudreau, click on Hockey Night In Canada presents Bruce Boudreau (by Elliot Friedman), select "CBC'S Hockey Night In Canada" on the left, and then "Dec 22: Inside Hockey" (see above)
Some quotes from the video:
Bruce Boudreau: "My 9 years old son texts me from Hershey what should I tell Ovechkin to do..."
Bruce's wife Crystal Boudreau:
"You are in a business where you are hired to be fired, promoted means move, demoted means move, that's just part of a business..."
Elliot Friedman: The Best Christmas?
Bruce Boudreau: This one...
Here and there:
Corey Masisak:"666 Career points for the Islanders' Miroslav Satan after he scored a goal in the second period."
From the blog of Sasha Ovechkin: Alex Ovechkin's last name means "little lamb". His nickname while he played for Dynamo and the National team -- "Sheep".
I'd say, a wolf in a sheep's costume. :-)
Pavel Datsyuk: “When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to drink a lot on Christmas and be drunk.” (Being Russian Orthodox, Datsyuk celebrates Christmas on Jan. 7.)
From The Hot Stove, Dec.22: "Open Russian Hockey League will have a salary cap of 22 million dollars, it means they are not going for the guys like Ovechkin."
