PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Flyers have continued their organizational purge, firing their assistant general manager and an assistant coach.

The Flyers fired Chris Pryor and Gord Murphy on Wednesday, a day after the Flyers blew a two-goal lead in the third period and lost 4-3 to Ottawa. The dismissals come two days after the Flyers fired general manager Ron Hextall following 4+ seasons on the job.

The Flyers are 10-12-2 and in last place in the Eastern Conference.

Pryor had worked for the Flyers for 19 seasons, first joining them as a scout. He worked his way up through the organization and was promoted to director of player personnel and assistant GM in 2016.

Murphy, who played four seasons with the Flyers, was hired as an assistant coach in 2014.

Flyers President Paul Holmgren said this week that the next general manager will decide the job status of coach Dave Hakstol.

Holmgren said Wednesday he does not "anticipate any further personnel moves in the near term."
