“Saint Patrick” Can Coach 'Em Up: From Elias: With a win tonight, Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy would break Marc Crawford's NHL record for most wins before two losses to start a coaching career. The most wins before two losses for a coach/manager in Major League Baseball belongs to Joe Morgan, who went 19–1 as a midseason replacement for the Red Sox in 1988. The NFL record is held by Jim Caldwell, who went 14–1 for the Colts in 2009. The NBA record is held by Al Cervi, who went 16–1 for the Syracuse Nationals in 1949–50.
