Celebrating The 2011 Holidays KingsCast Style

Keith Korneluk and Chris Kaliszewski have, apparently, been busy little elves during the 2011 holiday season.

On December 20, they looked back at the coaching tenure of Terry Murray, who was fired on December 12, in Episode 135 – Terry Murray, LA Kings Head Coach (08-11).

On Monday, he fired head coach Terry Murray, and named assistant coach John Stevens as interim head coach.

Murray, 61, earned a 139-106-30 regular season record with the Kings after joining the team in 2008-09. He ranks third in franchise history in wins, fourth in games coached, and first in winning percentage (.560).

LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — After all but one other player had disappeared from the main dressing room area to shower and change clothes, Los Angeles Kings right wing and team captain Dustin Brown sat dejectedly in his locker, slouched down, probably brooding about his team’s performance, or lack thereof, in a 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on December 10, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
