BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The overhaul is continuing in Buffalo after Sabres coach Ted Nolan purged most of his staff of assistants on Wednesday. Goalie coach Jim Corsi will not return, and assistant Teppo Numminens contract will not be renewed, the Sabres announced. Two other assistants, Joe Sacco and Jerry Forton, have a choice to stay with the Sabres after being offered jobs within the teams hockey department. The moves came three days after the Sabres (21-51-10) finished last in the standings, and closed one the worst and most tumultuous seasons in their 44-year history. The shake-up doesnt come as a surprise. Nolan inherited the staff in November, after being hired on an interim basis to replace Ron Rolston. Nolan has since been signed to a three-year contract and it was widely anticipated that he would begin hiring his own staff this off-season. Former NHL goalie Arturs Irbe is regarded a potential candidate to join Nolans staff. Irbe is from Latvia and has previously worked with Nolan, who has spent the past three years coaching the countrys national team. Corsi was the Sabres longest tenured assistant after completing his 16th season in Buffalo. He played a role in mentoring former Sabres great Dominik Hasek and then Ryan Miller, who was traded to St. Louis on Feb. 28. Numminen, a former NHL defenceman, completed his third season in Buffalo after being first hired by former Sabres coach Lindy Ruff. Sacco, the former Colorado Avalanche head coach, and Forton were hired by Rolston last off-season. In the meantime, Sacco will be working as an assistant under United States coach Peter Laviolette at the World Hockey championships in Belarus next month. The Sabres also announced theyre adding a second minor-league affiliate after reaching a deal with Elmira (N.Y.) of the ECHL. Elmira will complement the Sabres top affiliate, AHL Rochester. Both minor-league teams are located within 150 miles of Buffalo. Buffalo is in the midst of rebuilding from scratch. Through a series of trades, the Sabres have stockpiled a significant number of draft picks spread over the next three years, spurring the teams need to add another affiliate.

Monchengladbach and Hoffenheim entered the day as two of the three teams in the Bundesliga that had yet to taste defeat. But after the clubs traded goals in the first 30 minutes, Herrmann made the difference with a goal in each half to help his team stay unbeaten and remain within four points of leaders Bayern Munich. The home side needed just 12 minutes to get off the mark as they put together a nice counter attack that saw Herrmann coast down the left wing and cross the ball to the middle of the box for Andre Hahn, whose volley found its way past Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann. Hoffenheim was able to answer on the half-hour mark with a nice move that involved Roberto Firmino and Steven Zuber and ended with Anthony Modestee turning past his marker and driving a shot past goalkeeper Yann Sommer.dddddddddddd Hahn returned the favor to Herrmann only three minutes later, however, as Monchengladbach took back the lead with Hahns right-wing cross finding Herrmann at the near post and allowing him to turn the ball home. Herrmann doubled his total in the 52nd minute to make it 3-1 when Baumann fumbled a free kick from Havard Nordtveit that left Herrmann with a simple tap in. Raffael nearly added to the lead as he clipped the top of the crossbar with a shot for Monchengladbach, which easily saw out the rest of the match to join Wolfsburg on 20 points. Paderborn used second-half goals from Elias Kachunga and Alban Meha to claim a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin, while Freiburg secured its first win of the campaign to move off the bottom of the league as Vladimir Daridas 50th-minute penalty kick was enough for a 1-0 win at Cologne.
