Nearly a month after being hired to be the second head coach in the history of the Predators, Peter Laviolette was introduced to Nashville and its fans Sunday.
Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette already has brought the Stanley Cup to the South before and is eager to try to do it again.
He coached Carolina to a Stanley Cup in 2006 and took Philadelphia to the Stanley Cup finals in 2010. He was fired in October after the Flyers lost their first three games of the season.

Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches.
Earlier this season Ilya Bryzgalov lamented being "lost in the woods." The Philadelphia Flyers goaltender couldn't find his game or his confidence, a big problem for someone given a nine-year, $51 million contract and the pressure that comes with it.
Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr, who left the Winter Classic with a leg injury on Monday, has a mild left groin strain, and will miss seven to 10 days.
Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky didn't want to address it. Coach Peter Laviolette is traditionally tight-lipped about publicizing his starting goalie choice, and the Winter Classic was no different.
"When you come to a market like this, you see so many great fans that are passionate about sports and they 100 percent get behind a team," Laviolette said. "That was such a great feeling knowing that you are going to come to a city that represents their team like that and supports their team like that."
"I do see offensive potential in a lot of the forwards," Laviolette said. "There's a good mix and a good makeup of different personnel here. There's a lot of character here. There's a lot of work ethic here. There's a good goaltending situation here."
