A massive coaching firing in the NHL leaves major questions about what caused the move. Today, we'll look at what role the Nashville Predators' goaltenders played in their longtime head coach's firing. Then, we'll check in on a goalie's first appearance against his former squad.

DALLAS — Welcome to a Texas-sized NHL Winter Classic. The annual showcase is going to be one big outdoor game when the Dallas Stars host the Nashville Predators at the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium on Wednesday — even without “Big Tex” booming out the customary “Howdy, folks!” that visitors to the State Fair of Texas hear each fall. Texas Fair Site More than 84,000 fans are expected for the NHL's 12th New Year's Day game, this one at the stadium where the boots belonging to the fair's iconic 55-foot talking cowboy will be rink side near an oversized, ranch-style entry arch.
