Dale Hunter out as coach of Washington Capitals
'It was the right thing to do': Dale Hunter steps aside as coach of Washington Capitals
By The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) ' Dale Hunter is finished as coach of the Washington Capitals after less than one full season, telling the team he wants to return to his family in Canada.

Hunter says: "It was the right thing to do."

He told general manager George McPhee of the decision Monday, two days after the Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs by the Rangers in Game 7.



Hunter was hired in November to replace the fired Bruce Boudreau and went 30-23-7 during the remainder of the regular season to help the Capitals squeeze into the playoffs. Playing a defense-first, possession-oriented system, Washington eliminated reigning Stanley Cup champion Boston in the first round. Hunter also limited captain Alex Ovechkin's minutes.

McPhee says Hunter "got everything out of this team that he could."
