Ottawa - March 1, 2019 - Guy Boucher was fired as coach of the Ottawa Senators on Friday and replaced by Marc Crawford.

The Senators have lost six straight games and are last in the NHL standings.

"I want to thank Guy for his three years of service," Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. "He is a good person and has been an excellent representative of the Senators. At this point, however, we need a different set of coaching and leadership skills to guide our team through this rebuild. In the interim, Marc will bring a different perspective along with a wealth of head coaching experience."

Crawford was in his third season as associate coach of the Senators. He previously has coached the Quebec Nordiques, Colorado Avalanche, Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars. In 1,151 games, he has a record of 549-421-78 with 103 ties. He coached the Avalanche to the Stanley Cup in 1996 in their first season in Denver and won the Jack Adams Award in 1995 with Quebec in his first season as an NHL coach.

The Senators play the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; CITY, TVAS2, SUN, NHL.TV). It will be Crawford's first game as an NHL coach since he was fired by the Stars after the 2010-11 season.

Boucher was 94-108-26 in 228 games with the Senators. Ottawa reached the Eastern Conference Final in 2016-17, his first season, but missed the playoffs last season and was on pace to miss them again this season.

In six seasons with the Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning, Boucher is 191-187-46 in 424 games.

Boucher is the seventh coach to be fired this season, following Randy Carlyle (Anaheim Ducks), Dave Hakstol (Philadelphia Flyers), Todd McLellan (Edmonton Oilers), Mike Yeo (St. Louis Blues), Joel Quenneville (Chicago Blackhawks) and John Stevens (Los Angeles Kings).
