OTTAWA (AP) -The struggling Ottawa Senators have fired coach John Paddock, with just 18 games left in the regular season.
General manager Bryan Murray will take over as coach. Murray stepped aside to become the general manager last summer when Paddock was given the job.
The Senators lead the Northeast Division by a point over Montreal, but have been shut out in their last two games.
Last year, the Senators made it all the way to the NHL finals, losing in five games to Anaheim.
