Canadiens fire two assistants
MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens fired assistant coaches Randy Cunneyworth and Randy Ladouceur on Wednesday, a day after hiring Michel Therrien as head coach.
Cunneyworth finished the season as Montreal's interim head coach after the team fired Jacques Martin in December. The Canadiens went on to finish last in the Eastern Conference, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
