Flyers fire coach Laviolette after three games
Peter Laviolette is out as coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, after three losses to begin the 2013-2014 season.
The Flyers are expected to make that official at a morning news conference.
Laviolette was hired by Philadelphia in 2009, and led them to the 2010 Stanley Cup final. The Flyers missed the playoffs last season, and have lost their first three this season, including a 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.
Reports suggest assistant coach Craig Berube will take over.
