Well this makes for an interesting pairing.
Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette will assist Penguins’ coach Dan Bylsma for the American team at the Sochi Olympics in Russia next year. As CSN’s Tim Panaccio points out, Lavy has plenty of Olympic experience. He also has a bit of a history with Bylsma from that epic playoff series and game leading into it in 2012.
“It should be interesting to have all three in such close quarters on the bench given the incident in Pittsburgh on Apr. 1, 2012, when Laviolette, Bylsma and Granato exchanged words in the final 1:03 of a 6-4 Flyers’ win.”
No Flyers are likely on Team USA. Claude Giroux will rep for Canada while a couple of other Philadelphia players will likely rep their respective countries: Kimmo Timonen (Finland), Erik Gustafsson (Sweden), Nicklas Grossmann (Sweden), Andrej Meszaros (Slovakia), Jakub Voracek (Czech), Mark Streit (Switzerland).
