Cancel any plans to check out Barry Melrose in action, coaching the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday at the RBC Center.
The Lightning canned Melrose after 16 games Friday and will have Rick Tocchet behind the bench when they come to Raleigh. Tocchet, who served as associate coach, has been named interim head coach.
So the Canes will face the Lightning in their first game under a new coach. Should be interesting. Some timing for the Hurricanes.
