Tampa, Florida -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have released Guy Boucher from his head coaching commitment, effective immediately, according to vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman. 

Yzerman also announced that Martin Raymond and Dan Lacroix will share coaching responsibilities for the game tonight against the Winnipeg Jets. 

"Guy has poured his heart and soul into the Lightning organization for these past three years and we appreciate all the work he has done," said Yzerman upon making the announcement. "But ultimately I am not satisfied with the direction we are heading and I believe making a change today is in the best interest of our franchise."
