SHARE PENGUINS FIRE BOTH THEIR COACH, GENERAL MANAGER

The Pittsburgh Penguins fired general manager Tony Esposito and coach Gene Ubriaco and hired Craig Patrick, the former New York Rangers executive, as Esposito's replacement and interim coach.

Esposito was in his second year, while Ubriaco, a former minor league coach and long-time Esposito friend, was hired last season. He was the third coach in three years for the Penguins, in fifth place in the Patrick Division at 10-14-2.
