One year ago, this happened.
A day before getting set to play the Bruins, the Los Angeles Kings fired their coach, Terry Murray. What does this make Claude, like, the fifth-longest tenured coach in the NHL? Who's been around longer than him? I think I can name about four guys.
Zach Hamill was called up last night and Gregory Campbell was seen in a walking boot yesterday, Daniel Paille is potentially still concussed and Zdeno Chara is out. Tonight's going to be a tough one, but games against the Kings are always fun to watch, so maybe it'll still work out.
