Today the Flyers fired head coach John Stevens and will hire Peter Laviolette as his successor. Turnover like this is common in hockey as Stevens was the 2nd most tenured coach in the conference at 3+ years. Not sure why it is the coaches fault this team cannot score goals but what do I know.
Laviolette is not known as a players coach like Stevens so maybe this will give them a spark. He recently coached Carolina to a Stanley Cup win in '05-'06 but was fired after missing the playoffs the next 2 seasons.
