Former NHL goalie Patrick Roy has taken over as coach of the Quebec Remparts, the junior hockey team he co-owns. Roy, also the team's general manager, fired coach Eric Lavigne yesterday after the Ramparts got off to a 1-4-0 start in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Lavigne coached the club since the 2002-03 season. He will make his coaching debut tonight against St. John's. Roy, who turns 40 on Oct. 5, won four Stanley Cup championships and three Vezina Trophies as the NHL's top goaltender in 19 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche.

Colorado goaltender Patrick Roy stopped Dino Ciccarelli's punch, but not Bill Houlder's shot. Houlder scored with 2 minutes, 58 seconds left in overtime last night and the Tampa Bay Lightning won, 3-2, ending the visiting Avalanche's franchise-record 12-game unbeaten streak. Colorado took a 2-0 lead into the third period, but the Lightning rallied to extend its home undefeated string to six games. Houlder's screened shot from the right point eluded Roy, who fell to 0-6 lifetime at Tampa Bay. Roy, who leads the NHL with 23 wins this season, made 39 saves.

Ed Belfour knows all about the man he tied for second place on the NHL's career victory list. "I had a chance to read his biography," Belfour said after matching Terry Sawchuk with 447 wins last night in Toronto's 2-1 victory over host Florida. "He was a fierce competitor, very acrobatic and obviously very brave, not wearing a mask most of his career. I'm just honored to be tied with him. " Belfour, 40, made 34 saves. Patrick Roy (551) is the all-time leader in wins. Sawchuk was a member of Toronto's last Stanley Cup winner, in 1966-67.

Martin Brodeur silenced all the controversy about his recent slump and a benching against Colorado, and boyhood idol Patrick Roy, by shutting out the best team in hockey. Brodeur had 28 saves and assisted on a empty-net goal in leading the New Jersey Devils to a 2-0 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers last night. "When there is something else bothering you, you probably make a little better effort to put everything else aside and just concentrate on the game," said Brodeur, who had lost his last three starts before having to watch rookie Mike Dunham play against Roy in the Devils' 2-1 loss Saturday night.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Coaching professional hockey is a funny business. Last year's Jack Adams Award winner as coach of the year, Paul MacLean, is being blasted in Ottawa for the Senators' lost season. Meanwhile, in Buffalo, Ted Nolan was just given a 3-year contract extension for his work with the Sabres, who have only 14 regulation wins. Paul Maurice may not return to the bench - at his own discretion - after the best 32 games (16-12-5) the Jets have played since moving to Winnipeg in 2011.
