Washington Capitals GM Declines To Give Vote Of Confidence To Head Coach Bruce Boudreau

The Washington Capitals came into the 2011 season with high aspirations and great expectation, and started off by living up to them.  The team has won just three of the 11 games following an initial seven game win streak, though, and Saturday night's blowout loss marks the fourth straight.  Which led to postgame questions about the job security of head coach Bruce Boudreau, according to Washington Post Capitals beat reporter Katie Carrera -- questions that general manager George McPhee declined to answer.

"GM George McPhee declined to comment when asked postgame if he would give a vote of confidence for Coach Bruce Boudreau," Carrera tweeted.

It was at roughly this point in the 2007 season -- November 22, 2007, to be specific -- when McPhee dismissed Glen Hanlon and named Boudreau interim head coach for the Capitals.

Saturday night's game also marked the fourth straight in which Capitals captain and star player Alex Ovechkin was held without a point.
