PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Flyers fired coach Alain Vigneault on Monday following eight straight losses, two shy of matching a team record of 10 in a row, and with the franchise far from ending a 47-year Stanley Cup drought.

The Flyers have been one of NHL's biggest flops of the season. Their latest loss was a 7-1 defeat by Tampa Bay on Sunday night that sealed Vigneault's fate. Assistant coach Michel Therrien also was fired.

"Right now, we've lost our way," Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said.
