Viagra cheap canada Prior to appearing on HBO’s “24/&” show leading up to the 2011 NHL Winter Classic the only “acting” experience Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau’s resume contained was as an extra in the movie Slap Shot. Viagra cheap canada Boudreau portrayed a member of the Hyannisport Presidents (green sweater #7).

Viagra cheap canada With some extra time in between Game 3 and 4, viagra cheap canada Boudreau returned to his “24/7” roots as he channeled his inner Rex Ryan. Viagra cheap canada Much like the Jets coach, viagra cheap canada Boudreau took to the air to act crazy – as a fox.

Viagra cheap canada Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post offered up the following transcript of Boudreau’s interview with Washington radio station 105.9.

Viagra cheap canada “Well, viagra cheap canada the one thing, viagra cheap canada its reputation is far better than the actual building, viagra cheap canada” Boudreau said. Viagra cheap canada “I mean, viagra cheap canada it’s nothing. Viagra cheap canada The locker rooms are horrible. Viagra cheap canada The benches are horrible. Viagra cheap canada There’s no room for anything. Viagra cheap canada But the reputation of being in Madison Square Garden is what makes it famous. Viagra cheap canada Also, viagra cheap canada our building’s a lot louder, viagra cheap canada too. Viagra cheap canada So I mean, viagra cheap canada they can say what they want, viagra cheap canada but it’s not that loud in there.”

Viagra cheap canada Madison Square Garden is the oldest building in the NHL and very well may be a dump, viagra cheap canada but it is our dump – the same way Shea Stadium was to New York Mets fans.

Viagra cheap canada His building is also the place where they have to rely on some guy blowing on a plastic horn in order to make noise. Viagra cheap canada In addition, viagra cheap canada I seem to remember seeing Caps fans dump water and ice on the Rangers bench and coaches. Viagra cheap canada Bruce had better watch out because that liquid that might be spilled on him on Wednesday night might not be water.

Viagra cheap canada You have to give Boudreau credit for shifting the focus off his team and on to himself – much like Ryan did for his Jets.

Viagra cheap canada You have to remember that the Capitals have lost their last two playoff series after holding two game leads. Viagra cheap canada After coming from behind to defeat the Rangers in 2009, viagra cheap canada Washington won the first two games against Pittsburgh only to lose to the Penguins in seven games.

Viagra cheap canada Last year, viagra cheap canada the President Trophy winning Capitals could not close out Montreal as the eighth seeded Canadiens roared back to win in seven games after trailing three-games-to-one.

Viagra cheap canada It is a point that Tarik El-Bashir of The Washington Post addressed.

Viagra cheap canada “One doesn’t need to be a pessimist to see troubling parallels between what’s happened over the past 80 minutes and what transpired last April, viagra cheap canada when Washington let a 3-1 series lead slip away and fell to Montreal in Game 7.”

Viagra cheap canada In addition to shifting the focus off his team, viagra cheap canada Boudreau continued deflecting by complaining about the officiating – a time-honored tradition among coaches in all sports.

Viagra cheap canada Steinberg offered up the following diatribe from the Boudreau interview.

Viagra cheap canada “During the playoffs you have a supervisor at every game, viagra cheap canada so if you have a complaint or something that you want to lodge, viagra cheap canada you talk to the supervisor and then he’ll talk to the referees and he’ll talk to the powers that be, viagra cheap canada” Boudreau explained. Viagra cheap canada “But the trick about that is it’s usually closing the door and the horse has left the barn, viagra cheap canada it’s an over-and-done fact, viagra cheap canada because the referees are different every game in the first series. Viagra cheap canada .?.?.”

Viagra cheap canada “So what they do is they can warn the other guys that this is what the other team’s talking about and look out for it, viagra cheap canada but that’s pretty well what you can do. Viagra cheap canada I mean, viagra cheap canada the refs are very serious about this too, viagra cheap canada this is their playoffs too, viagra cheap canada their Stanley Cup, viagra cheap canada so they don’t want to make any mistakes. Viagra cheap canada But it happens.”

Viagra cheap canada For his credit, viagra cheap canada Rangers coach John Tortorella took the high road when asked about Boudreau’s comments during an interview with Michael Kay of ESPN 1050 radio in New York.

Viagra cheap canada “We haven’t really thought too much about locker rooms, viagra cheap canada how loud it is, viagra cheap canada” Larry Brooks of the NY Post wrote. Viagra cheap canada “I’m not even sure what he’s trying to say there.

Viagra cheap canada “We’re just concerned with trying to be the best we can be and play the right way. Viagra cheap canada Now, viagra cheap canada I will say the fans gave us a tremendous lift last night. Viagra cheap canada “I’m hoping that we can get off to a good start and continue on our way. Viagra cheap canada That’s our concentration. Viagra cheap canada Nothing else around us is going to (deter) us from our focus, viagra cheap canada and that’s our next game.”

Viagra cheap canada In addition to his general whining, viagra cheap canada er complaining, viagra cheap canada Boudreau vented about the rough treatment goalie Michal Neuvirth received from the Blueshirts in Game 3 and he called for the NHL to review what the Caps coach called a Marc Staal head shot to Mike Green as Alexander Ovechkin tied the game in the second period.

Viagra cheap canada If you look back at the first three games, viagra cheap canada Tortorella is correct when he said the Rangers could just as easily be ahead 2-1 in the series. Viagra cheap canada A defensive breakdown cost them a chance to win Game 1 1-0 and a two-minute stretch in Game 2 cost the Rangers dearly.

Viagra cheap canada The Blueshirts ability to stay within striking distance is not one that is lost on the Capitals – hence Boudreau’s attempt to shift the focus.

Viagra cheap canada “The mood at the team’s Arlington practice facility was businesslike Monday. Viagra cheap canada High-minute players stayed off the ice and those who spoke to reporters did so in calm, viagra cheap canada measured tones, viagra cheap canada” El-Bashir wrote.

Viagra cheap canada “But it was still impossible to escape the feeling that the Capitals are at a crossroads in their postseason journey.”

Viagra cheap canada Washington’s Brooks Laich confirmed El-Bashir’s opinion when he told the writer that the fourth game “is really going to swing the series. Viagra cheap canada We could take a stranglehold on it, viagra cheap canada or it could be a very long series.”

Viagra cheap canada Given their past history, viagra cheap canada the last thing the Capitals want is a long series because they have lost their last three Game 7 playoff matchups.
