The Pittsburgh Penguins have fired coach Michel Therrien, a year after he led the team to the Stanley Cup finals.
Dan Bylsma, coach of the team's AHL affiliate in
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, will be interim coach with 25 games
remaining in the NHL season.
Even with standouts Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the
Penguins have struggled to a 27-25-5 record this season and have
the 10th-best record in the Eastern Conference.
The Penguins lost to the Detroit Red Wings in six games in last
year's Stanley Cup finals.
