Detroit Red Wings team, Bowman, Yzerman and Burke mourn McCrimmon

FARMINGTON, Mich. - The entire Detroit Red Wings team, Scotty Bowman, Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman and Toronto Maple Leafs president and general manager Brian Burke are among the mourners at Brad McCrimmon's funeral Saturday.

The 52-year-old McCrimmon, a Detroit assistant coach for the past three seasons, died last week when Russia's Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey club's Yak-42 jet crashed outside Yaroslavl en route to their first game of the season.

McCrimmon had been hired as Locomotiv's head coach in May.
