There had been speculation in Dallas for weeks that Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan was going to be fired at the end of the lockout-shortened 48-game NHL season.

Well, at least for now, Black Monday did not get the coach, but the GM instead.

On Sunday night, the Stars fired general manager Joe Nieuwendyk after four seasons, two coaches and no playoffs appearances.

The Stars ended the season with a 22-22-4 mark and out of the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

The 46-year-old Nieuwendyk is a former NHL center playing for Calgary, Dallas, New Jersey, Toronto and Florida from 1987-2007.

For now, Dallas has an option on Coach Gulutzan for a third season.

Black Monday usually happens the day after the final NHL regular-season games.

It’s the day when owners and general managers fire their coaches after a disappointing season.

Joe Sacco was fired on Sunday after the Colorado Avalanche lost to the Minnesota Wild 3-1 in their final game.

The Avs missed the playoffs for the third straight season.

Colorado, usually a playoff contender, never was able to get going in the 48-game season and finished last in the Western Conference at 16-25-7 for 39 points.

Sacco, in four seasons, had a record of 130-134-30. He leaves with one year on his contract.

A former NHL Right winger, Sacco played from 1990-2003 with Toronto, Anaheim, New York Islanders, Washington and Philadelphia.
