So the big news of the day (year?) is that the Montreal Canadiens fired head coach Jacques Martin. You've likely heard most of the details by now but, suffice it to say that the change to Randy Cunneyworth didn't yield great results against the Devils last night.
The Habs are now on to Boston to kick off a six-game road trip. Will they still be in the playoff picture when they get back?
Lots of different looks at the coaching change and what it means for Montreal, below.
