Panthers move fast, hire Joel Quenneville as next coach

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Dale Tallon and Joel Quenneville are together again, and the Florida Panthers are ready for them to recreate their magic.

Quenneville - who is second on the NHL's all-time victory list - was hired Monday to coach the Panthers, who started their offseason with a splash. It's also a reunion, after Tallon hired Quenneville to coach Chicago in 2008 and wound up watching him win three Stanley Cups there in a six-year span.

Tallon wasn't there for those Chicago titles; he was fired less than a year after delivering Quenneville. Finally, now, he gets a chance to work with Quenneville again.
