Boudreau / Ovechkin Rift

"Asked about his team’s struggles Sunday afternoon, Boudreau compared the handling of multimillionaire professional hockey players to raising children.

“It’s like parenting,” he said. “You want to get your child to do something right, you scold ’em, you cajole ’em, you take away things, you give things. I’ve always believed that it’s the coach’s job to find the Achilles’ heel that makes them work.”

Asked if Ovechkin’s “button” has been harder to find than it is with other players, Boudreau passed on the question, flashing a sarcastic smile.

“Go ahead,” he said, turning his head toward another reporter.

Perhaps Boudreau’s non-answer was stronger than any explanation he could make. But it also underscored the challenge he had before him, one that, in his words, is his job to meet."
