Boudreau: 'We didn't have any energy'

Capitals Coach Bruce Boudreau pointed to several reasons for the team's slow start on Sunday, including Calgary players being "called out" by Flames GM Darryl Sutter. The Flames lost to Boston on Saturday, 5-0, and are desperately trying to move into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

That sense of urgency resulted in a spirited effort on the part of Calgary in a 5-3 victory in which the Flames scored three times in the first period on goalie Jose Theodore, who was pulled for Semyon Varlamov.

Here is Boudreau's opening statement:

Regardless if this team has locked up first place in their division or not, it should not take 2 periods for them to wake up and get in the game. I hope they don't think they can do the same thing they did last year and go into the playoffs on a low note and expect to just turn it on. You can't bail yourself out of 0-2 holes every year. Hopefully this was just a bump in an otherwise amazing season thus far.
