Vigneault, Laviolette earn All-Star coaching spots
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Vancouver’s Alain Vigneault and Philadelphia’s Peter Laviolette have earned co-coaching positions in the NHL All-Star game on Jan. 30 in Carolina.
Under the All-Star Game selection process, the coaches of the teams with the highest points percentage in the Eastern and Western Conference through Saturday get to co-lead one of the All-Star teams.
Vigneault’s Canucks lead the Western Conference with a points percentage of .738 with 59 points in 40 games and are assured of having the West’s top points percentage through Saturday night.
Laviolette’s Flyers lead the Eastern Conference with a points percentage of .695 following a 2-1 victory over New Jersey on Saturday. The Flyers have 57 points in 41 games.
By virtue of winning the 2010 Stanley Cup, Chicago coach Joel Quenneville will be the head coach of the other All-Star team. Quenneville will be assisted by Mike Haviland, his assistant in Chicago.
