Report: Senators fire general manager Muckler

The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Ottawa Senators have fired general manager John Muckler.

According to Bruce Garrioch, the 73-year-old Muckler apparently was told Friday by owner Eugene Melnyk that his services would no longer be needed.

Muckler's Senators reached their first Stanley Cup finals this season by losing just three of 15 games to Pittsburgh, New Jersey and Buffalo to represent the Eastern Conference.

Ottawa was ousted in five games by Anaheim.
