Senators fire MacLean, name Cameron coach

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 5:22 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Breakdowns, on the ice and off it, led to the firing of Paul MacLean as the coach of the Ottawa Senators on Monday, replaced by Dave Cameron.

Senators president of hockey operations and general manager Bryan Murray said consistent turnovers on the ice and a lack of communication between MacLean and the players led to the coach's dismissal.

MacLean, hired in the summer of 2011, was the winner of the 2013 Jack Adams Award as the NHL's coach of the year after leading the Senators to a 25-17-6 record. He leaves the Senators with a 114-90-35 record.

Cameron has been promoted from assistant coach. Murray said it is not on an interim basis. Cameron has two years remaining on his contract.

Murray said he and his staff, the coaches included, judged this season's Senators as a potential Stanley Cup Playoff team. They are 11-11-5 and sit four points out of the second wild-card position in the Eastern Conference.

MONTREAL -- One day before they face off against each other, the Montreal Canadiens and the Vancouver Canucks shared the common goal of comforting Jean Beliveau's widow and family in their time of grief.

"I find the family to be very strong. They're united," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "For Mrs. Beliveau and the family to take the time to accept everyone's condolences, it impressed me enormously. It was important for us to be there to pay our respects."

Senators' Cameron built strong resume in juniors

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 3:50 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Long before Dave Cameron was hired as assistant coach of the Ottawa Senators three years ago, he was already building a reputable coaching resume in the Canadian Hockey League and internationally.

Cameron was promoted to coach of the Senators on Monday when general manager Bryan Murray fired Paul MacLean. In making the change, Murray cited an "obligation for a lot of people to perform better."

He's hoping Cameron can ignite the spark his team needs.

"He'll be a good teacher," Murray said. "We don't have a lot of older players, so the [younger ones] will certainly like Dave."

Cameron, 56, spent four seasons as the coach and general manager of the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors in the Ontario Hockey League before being hired by the Senators on June 23, 2011. In four seasons with the Majors, Cameron went 165-91-16 in 272 regular-season games. In 2010-11, he led the Majors to the OHL championship series and the championship game of the Memorial Cup.

EPIX crew begins filming with Capitals

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- A usual scene unfolded prior to the Washington Capitals practice Monday morning when goaltending coach Mitch Korn huddled together Braden Holtby and Justin Peters, preparing them for a 30-minute workout.

As defensemen Jack Hillen and Nate Schmidt made D-to-D passes while the goaltenders cradled medicine balls and cut side-to-side, a cameraman kneeled behind at each point, filming the entire drill and turning an ordinary occurrence into a potential television segment.

That is the Capitals lives for the next several weeks as a 15-person crew from EPIX has arrived to chronicle their preparation for the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 1.

"They're doing a pretty good job of being sneaky," forward Eric Fehr said. "They've caught us a few times where we don't even know they're there and they've got you mic'd."
