Tarik had word on another tough day in Caps-land - Alex Semin is out of tonight's lineup versus the Flyers, after reinjuring his ankle at practice yesterday. Tarik also has a full length piece on Hanlon's ouster as Coach.
And from Boudreau:
"For the most part this year, I thought we were a team that played hard but wasn't getting rewarded," McPhee said. "But the last few games, it looked like we had lost the team, and you can't ignore that."
"He knew as soon as he saw me this morning," McPhee added, referring to Hanlon. "He said, 'I wouldn't have known what to do today.' "
"The guys will get over it," Boudreau said. "They feel sorry, but in the end, they are concerned about their jobs. Because that's next. They've got to play to their capabilities. Hopefully the players get that message."Corey gets some more out of GMGM:
Added McPhee: "[Hanlon] said, 'I don't have any regrets. I wouldn't have changed anything. I just couldn't get any more out of them.' And he said, 'I wouldn't have known what to do today.' As usual, Glen was pretty candid."
