Report: Stars fire coach Dave Tippett @NHLdotcom

DALLAS (AP) -A Canadian cable sports channel is reporting that the Dallas Stars have fired coach Dave Tippett after seven seasons.

Dallas Stars spokesman Rob Scichili says in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Wednesday night that the Stars had nothing to release at this time.

TSN, on its Web site, quoted unidentified sources as saying the Stars had asked for permission to talk to former Los Angeles Kings coach Marc Crawford.

The report of the firing comes on the heels of the Stars' hiring of Joe Nieuwendyk as general manager last month.

The Stars failed to make the playoffs this year.
