SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Dale Tallon and Joel Quenneville are together again, and the Florida Panthers are ready for them to recreate their magic.
Quenneville - who is second on the NHL's all-time victory list - was hired Monday to coach the Panthers, who started their offseason with a splash. It's also a reunion, after Tallon hired Quenneville to coach Chicago in 2008 and wound up watching him win three Stanley Cups there in a six-year span.
Tallon wasn't there for those Chicago titles; he was fired less than a year after delivering Quenneville. Finally, now, he gets a chance to work with Quenneville again.
