Devils’ Head Coach Lemaire Won’t Return Next Season

Filed under: Uncategorized — michaelperchick @ 5:16 pm

For those hockey fan(s?) out there, New Jersey Devils head coach Jacques Lemaire has called it quits….again.  Lemaire, who retired after last season, only to come back in December after the Devils fired then-head coach John McLean, lead the Devils to the best record in hockey the second half of the season.  The Devils finished the season, and potentially Lemaire’s career, with a 3-2 victory today over the Boston Bruins.  New Jersey is missing the playoffs for the first time since 1996, the longest such streak in the Eastern Conference, and the second-longest in the NHL (the Detroit Red Wings).
