NHL Power Rankings: Who Will Get Fired First?

[1]The Tampa Bay Lightning have fallen to 18th in the league with the number two offense. That leaves defense, goal-tending and coaching to blame as the Lightning rank 27th in goals against. The Lightning started the season red hot going 6-1-0 in their first seven games and are now bitter cold going 3-10-1 since.

What’s interesting is the Lightning play a team in a similar situation in the New Jersey Devils tonight. The Devils started off the season strong (8-1-3) and have faded quickly losing their last five straight and are 2-5-2 since their hot start.

Are these two teams looking at a coaching change?
