<span style="font-weight: bold">RALEIGH, N.C</span>. -- The Flyers have fired coach Peter Laviolette, the Daily News has learned.
Laviolette will be replaced by assistant coach Craig Berube, according to a club source. It is unclear at the moment as to whether Berube will be an interim coach or whether he will be given the job on a permanent basis starting today.
The Flyers are holding an 11 a.m. press conference at Wells Fargo Center with GM Paul Holmgren and team president Peter Luukko to discuss the news.
Laviolette and the Flyers got off to an 0-3 start for the second season in a row - and just the second time in franchise history.
