Busy day in Eastern Conference
Two big moves for Eastern Conference teams.
Les Habitants fired Jacques Martin and replaced him with Randy Cunneyworth.
Ottawa has acquired Kyle Turris from Phoenix -- still waiting for who is going the other way.
The Canadiens are the 12th team to change coaches since the end of last season (and the 6th to do so this season- most ever before Xmas, per Elias). Jack Capuano is now the 18th most experienced coach in the NHL (current position). He'll coach his 95th game for Isles tonight.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
