GOC SENDS HIS FORMER COACH TO OTTAWA
By virtue of his two-point performance, former Sharks forward Marcel Goc helped send his coach from the 2008-09 season to the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa. Goc's Panthers squad defeated the Canucks in regulation, 2-1, which resulted in the Sharks earning the highest percentage of available points in the Western Conference for games played through Jan. 9. McLellan will join forces with Rangers head coach John Tortorella.
