Former Capitals beat-writer Tarik El-Bashir takes a picture of former Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau. Weiiiiiird.

On Saturday night, Bruce Boudreau returned to Giant Center for the first time since he was head coach of the Washington Capitals to watch the Anaheim Ducks’ AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, take on the Bears. Sitting with friend and former boss Bears’ general manager Doug Yingst, Boudreau got to see Norfolk rout Hershey 5-1 and witness one of his former players nearly check enforcer Jay Rosehill into the team’s bench. Well with Norfolk set to take on Hershey at the Verizon Center on Thursday for the AHL Showcase, Boudreau stayed in the area, and tonight the former Jack Adams award-winner showed up on the sidelines of the Washington Redskins Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants. Aww, he looks so jolly.

So the question is: are you guys happy to see him back?

Update: Craig Laughlin and voice of the Caps, John Walton, were also at the game too.

    He was at the Norfolk Admirals game in Norfolk last Weds night too (the 28th). So he is obviously watching his top prospects play

  • We miss Gabby:( Hope to see him around Kettler the next couple of days!

  • Bruce how I’ve missed your round little face 🙂

    gotta love bruce

    He should never have been forced to leave; he is still one of the best coaches in the NHL and certainly far better than Dale “I don’t talk to my players” Hunter.

    Nice to see Locker back!

  • Jose

    He didn’t do any wrong for the Caps, I don’t blame last season’s problems on him, so yeah, happy to see he’s not an outcast in DC.

  • ChickenLittle

    Yes, so glad to see Bruce back in DC! We definitely miss him! He is hilarious and was the catalyst that turned this team around. Hey, maybe GMGM is thinking about re-hiring him???? Just sayin…

    Locker seriously looks like he could be Ovi’s dad in that picture. Same nose and goofy smile. I’ve never noticed that before.
