Cassidy Named NHL All Star Coach
Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy will coach the Atlantic Division team in the NHL All Star Game on January 25th in St. Louis. It will be a first-time thing for Cassidy.
He earns the right to coach by virtue of his Bruins having a 24-7-11 record.
Cassidy will have two Bruins players with him at the All Star Game - David Pastrnak and Tuuka Rask.
The tournament format will be four divisional teams, playing a 3-on-3 format.
It is interesting to note that after losing in 3-on-3 overtime last night, the Bruins are now 2-11 in 3-on-3 overtimes or shootouts so far this year.
