Senators' Boucher: When MacArthur scored, all of Ottawa raised its arms
Guy Boucher is a proud coach.
While he's only been behind the Ottawa Senators' bench for one season, he's clearly developed an attachment to his players, as evidenced by his reaction to Clarke MacArthur scoring his first goal in almost two years during a Game 2 win over the Boston Bruins.
"One of the most special moments I've lived as a coach," Boucher said of the goal, according to Brent Wallace of TSN.
Boucher added that he had goosebumps, telling Dan Seguin of CBC: "When (MacArthur) raised his arms, the whole city raised its arms."
MacArthur's previous goal came during the 2015 playoffs, with a series of concussions largely keeping him out of the lineup since that time.
For his part, Boucher did come within a win of the Stanley Cup Final with Tampa Bay back in 2011, but his first postseason with Ottawa has clearly left a lasting impression, due in part to MacArthur's inspiring play.
