With Laviolette at the helm, should Nashville’s hot start come as a real surprise?

Laviolette on Nashville’s anemic powerplay: “The goals will come”

Through Nashville’s first five games of the season, their inability to convert on the powerplay was one of the most obvious questions that stuck out immediately.

I would also like to nominate Peter Laviolette for the Jack Adams award, hand Devan Dubnyk the Vezina, and tab the Sabres as Stanley Cup favorites. They’ll beat the Flames in seven, of course.

Peter Laviolette out as Flyers coach

This morning, multiple sources reported that Peter Laviolette, the Flyers' coach for the last four seasons, was fired Monday morning after the team matched last year's franchise-worst 0-3-0 start.
