Canadiens head coach Claude Julien and assistant coach Kirk Muller are out in Montreal.
On Tuesday night, the Canadiens lost their second-straight game to the lowly Ottawa Senators via a 5-4 in the shootout, picking up their sixth defeat in the last eight games.
Montreal got off to an inspiring 7-1-2 start and has been even worse since, following an off-season in which Marc Bergevin dolled out $69.5 million to free agents Joel Edmundson, Josh Anderson and Tyler Toffoli.
As always, the internet had a lot to say about the situation. Here's some of the reaction:
I wish Claude Julien well, especially his Health. He seemed to have lost weight and looked pale.
As for Kirk Muller, he is a Montreal hero and deserves the best. Wish him well also!
We lost 2 great guys, but they weren't fit for the job anymore
