Following a 3-7-1 stretch that saw the Washington Capitals plummet all the way to eighth place in the Eastern Conference Standings, general manager George McPhee fired Bruce Boudreau on Monday, and named former Caps star Dale Hunter as the team's new head coach. Hunter, who has stayed involved in the game by coaching the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, makes his NHL coaching debut Tuesday night when the Capitals host the surging St. Louis Blues at Verizon Center.
