WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau has been caught cursing up a storm by HBO's cameras - just like New York Jets coach Rex Ryan was.

And Boudreau has been suitably chastised by his mom - just like Ryan was.

Boudreau says Thursday: "My mom already called me about how many (swear words) I used."

The first episode of the reality series, "24/7: Penguins-Capitals, Road to the NHL Winter Classic" aired Wednesday night. It's a behind-the-scenes look at the two teams as they approach their outdoor game Jan. 1 in Pittsburgh.

Wednesday's show included footage of Boudreau yelling at his players on the bench during a timeout and in the locker room during their current seven-game losing streak.
