"Maybe he’s trying to do too much because we haven’t been winning, I don’t know," Boudreau told reporters Thursday, according to Janis Carr of the Orange County Register. "He wants to make the great plays, he wants this team to win. He takes a lot of pride in this team, so sometimes you try too hard to make the right play."
Getzlaf's giveaway gave Ottawa Senators forward Curtis Lazar an easy breakaway goal Wednesday night, and Boudreau benched his captain until midway through the third period, when he inserted him into the fourth line.
"I was more upset with myself on the (goal) than anything," Getzlaf said. "We’re all accountable for what we do. It’s not often I get (benched), and sometimes the message needs to be sent. I did my best to stay up on the bench and made sure the guys are ready and be sure I was ready when my turn came again."
"He sure redeemed himself," Boudreau said Thursday. "It was nice to see when you get there and redeem yourself like that."
