Flyers Hire Laviolette

The Caps will see a familiar face tonight behind the Philadelphia bench as the organization has hired former Carolina Hurricanes bench boss Peter Laviolette to replace John Stevens, who was shown the door late yesterday.

Laviolette, who's been spending his free time coaching his son's Pee Wee hockey team, just got a big fat promotion from the local rink back to the big show. He'll have his work cut out for him as he tries to stop the downward spiral and reverse the scoring woes of the current Flyers bench, who are stacked with a roster of highly paid stars such as Danny Briere and Chris Pronger. Let's welcome our old Southeastern conference pal back to the NHL with a win Caps!
