Another week and another head coach has been fired in the NHL. 

After getting beat down by the Buffalo Sabres last night and not meeting expectations, the New Jersey Devils have fired head coach John Hynes. 

Assistant coach Alain Nasredddine fills in as interim head coach. 

It's very interesting timing considering that the Devils play again tonight in just a few hours. 

"John played an integral role in the development of this team in establishing a foundation for our future and we are grateful for his commitment, passion and unmatched work ethic," said Shero. "John is a respected leader, developer of talent and friend which makes this decision difficult. We are a team that values and takes pride in accountability to the results we produce. We are collectively disappointed in our performance on the ice and believe changes were needed, starting with our head coach. I have been consistent in my desire to build something here in New Jersey that earns the respect of teams throughout the league and pride in our fans. That is not where we were heading and for me to tolerate anything less was not acceptable."
