Big changes in Montreal with Cunneyworth, Carriere stepping behind bench

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BUFFALO AND PITTSBURGH -- The Sabres' division has been shaken up again, this time with familiar faces taking over in Montreal.

The Canadiens have fired coach Jacques Martin and replaced him with Randy Cunneyworth, who will take over on an interim basis for the rest of the season. Cunneyworth is a former Sabres forward and was a longtime coach of the Rochester Amerks.

The Canadiens also announced this morning that Larry Carriere, another former Sabres player who later became an assistant to General Manager Darcy Regier, will be behind the bench as an assistant coach.

As for the Sabres, they are holding a team meeting at their hotel before an optional skate for tonight's game in Pittsburgh.
