Ducks clip Caps in Boudreau’s return to DC

Updated: December 23, 2013

Washington, DC ( – 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.
