(Learfield) Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin is relieving Bruce Boudreau of his head coaching duties.
Boudreau's firing comes the morning after his team blew a two-goal, third-period lead and lost to the New York Rangers 4-3 in a shootout. The Wild earned a point and now trails Arizona by three points for the final wild card spot in the Western Conference.
Guerin thanked Boudreau in a statement for "his hard work and commitment to the Minnesota Wild" during his tenure. Guerin traded away popular player Jason Zucker this week to free up future salary cap space.
