It just seemed poetic today that are moment involves firing a coach. No one knows why this seems to work and yet it does. The moment comes from 24 years ago today and literally resulted in the Devils first playoff berth ever and maybe a famous incident as seen below. As always we have the video first and then the moment.
January 26, 1988
New Jersey General Manager Lou Lamoriello fired Devils' coach Doug Carpenter, and replaced him with Jim Schoenfeld. Carpenter had compiled a 100-166-24 record in 290 games for the Devils.
