Bruce Boudreau becomes regular coach of Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals finally got the regular coach. After starting the season 6-14-1 , the Capitals fired coach Glen Hanlon and replaced him with Bruce Boudreau.

Bruce Boudreau is no more the current interim head coach of the Washington Capitals. As a player, Boudreau played professionally for 20 seasons, logging 141 games in the National Hockey League and 30 games in the World Hockey Association. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Blackhawks, and Minnesota Fighting Saints.

After his playing days were over he began a successful coaching career. In minor-league hockey, Boudreau has coached the Muskegon Fury, the Fort Wayne Komets, the Mississippi Sea Wolves, the Lowell Lock Monsters, the Manchester Monarchs and most recently, the Hershey Bears.

Under Boudreau's leadership, the Hershey Bears won the 2006 American Hockey League Calder Cup Championship. The Bears made it all the way back to the Calder Cup Finals under Coach Boudreau again in 2007, ultimately falling to the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Previously, Boudreau coached the Mississippi Sea Wolves to the ECHL Championship in 1999, and also led the Fort Waybe Komets to the IHL Finals in 1994.

Boudreau was named head coach of the NHL's Washington Capitals on November 22, 2007 .

Wednesday night's game under Boudreau against the Tampa Bay Lightning was successful and ended in 7-5-3 . This game gave a stimulus for the team to improve their position.

The recent weeks under Boudreau were rather fruitful for the team, marking the improvement from 2.2 under Hanlon.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
