COACHING CHANGES TRANSACTIONS POWER POLL DEPTH CHARTS CURRENT ODDS
Ducks clip Caps in Boudreau's return to DC
Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Hampus Lindholm's tally late in the third period sent Anaheim to a 3-2 victory over the Capitals in Bruce Boudreau's return to Washington.
Boudreau had served as Caps head coach from November of 2007 through November of 2011, and was named to Anaheim's post only two days after being dumped. Due to limited inter-conference play and last year's lockout, he had yet to set foot in America's capital since.
Saku Koivu and Andrew Cogliano registered a goal and assist each for the Ducks, who won all four contests on their completed road trip and extended their franchise-best streak to nine consecutive triumphs.
Jonas Hiller needed to make just 17 stops.
Mikhail Grabovski and Nicklas Backstrom provided the offense for the Capitals, losers in four of their last six outings.
Philipp Grubauer stopped 26 pucks in defeat.
