Red Wings announce 2008-09 schedule

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings will face off at home against the rest of the Original Six as they seek to defend their league title.

The team yesterday announced its 2008-09 schedule, which includes an Oct. 9 home opener against Toronto and regular-season home games against the New York Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens. A home exhibition game against the Boston Bruins is scheduled for Sept. 26.

The Wings will play the Blackhawks at home Dec. 30 before facing the team again Jan. 1 in an outdoor game at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

The Red Wings on Nov. 11 will play Pittsburgh at Joe Louis Arena in their first meeting since Detroit defeated the Penguins last month to win the Stanley Cup.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Good luck, Terry Murray. You've just been hired for the toughest job in the NHL.

That's what Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said when he introduced Murray as the 22nd coach in franchise history at the team's training facility.

Murray, who turns 58 Sunday, signed a three-year, $2.65 million contract to succeed Marc Crawford, who was fired June 10 after two unsuccessful seasons.

Unsuccessful has been the byword for the Kings in recent years since they haven't qualified for the playoffs since 2002. They had 71 points last season - tied with Tampa Bay for the fewest in the NHL.

Murray has a 360-288-89 regular-season record and a 46-43 postseason mark as a coach with Philadelphia (1989-94), Washington (1995-97) and Florida (1998-2001).

Crawford, 47, coached the Kings to a 59-84-21 record in his two seasons on the job. He had one year left on his contract.
