The Anaheim Ducks are 0-for-11 with the man advantage.
It's too early to be overly concerned, but it's certainly a rough start and it's partially responsible for Anaheim's lackluster 1-1-1 record. The Ducks are one of six teams that has yet to score a power-play goal this season. Anaheim was a middle of the road team when it came to the power play in 2016-17 as the squad converted on 18.7% of its chances. Oct 10 - 5:11 AM

Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray was thrilled with the two players he got in the second round.

For the first time since he has been the GM, Murray did not have a first round pick but when he selected Maxime Comtois and Antoine Morand with the 50th and 60th picks in round two, the atmosphere changed as the organization figured both would be gone by then. "Having no first is difficult," Murray said Saturday. "It’s the first time I’ve never had one. ...Talking to our guys last night, they were kind of down. Because they didn’t think the first two guys would still be there when we picked at 50 and 60. They were very excited today. They were happy with it. If they’re happy, I usually feel pretty good about it. Considering what we had, I think we did very well." The Ducks gave up their first round pick when they got Patrick Eaves from Dallas at the trade deadline.

Trent Yawney, Rich Preston and Sudarshan Maharaj will all be back with the Ducks in 2017.

The news came out after head coach Randy Carlyle and the Ducks announced a one-year contract extension. Yawney and Preston are assistant coaches, while Maharaj has been serving as the team's goalie coach. As of right now, the only assistant that won't be returning is Paul MacLean. He and the team decided to mutually part ways on Thursday night.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed head coach Randy Carlyle to a one-year contract extension.

Carlyle is now locked up through the 2018-19 campaign and his new deal also includes an option for 2019-20. Carlyle is in his second stint as the Ducks' bench boss and so far it's gone well with Anaheim posting a 46-23-13 regular season record and reaching the Western Conference Final. "We made great strides this past season and clearly Randy was at the center of that," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "He's committed to this organization and to winning another Stanley Cup. Extending his contract was an easy decision for us."

Anaheim ended a 0-for-20 drought on the power play in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final against Nashville.

Sami Vatanen scored his first goal of the playoffs in his eighth appearance to get the Ducks on the board in a 5-3 victory. Anaheim finished the contest with one goal on two power-play chances.

The Anaheim Ducks have yet to lose in the province of Alberta during the playoffs.

The Ducks beat Calgary both times in the first round and have taken care of the Oilers in the two games in Edmonton thus far. The Ducks are in Edmonton for Game 6 on Sunday and will clinch the series with a win.
May 7 - 7:37 AM

The Anaheim Ducks' Game 1 loss to Edmonton on Wednesday was their first regulation defeat since March 10.

Anaheim enjoyed a 15-0-3 run, including its four-game sweep of Calgary in the first round. "In reality, we really couldn’t think we were going to win every game," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "We’ve had so much success. ... Sometimes things aren’t going to go your way every night. Because it’s a playoff game and we battled back and we had a lead and we battled back from a 3-1 deficit to make it 3-3 in our building, those are the things you try to build on. We have to have more from our group, it’s as simple as that." Of course he's right and dropping Game 1 in the second round is a problem, but not a huge one. Anaheim can bounce back from that, but the pressure will be on the Ducks to do so in Game 2.
Apr 27 - 10:36 AM

The Anaheim Ducks aren't putting a lot of stock in the fact that they won the division or their superior seed to their first round opponent, the Calgary Flames.

"Especially the playoffs," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "How many times have you seen a lower seed take out a top seed? Numerous. It happens all the time." There might be some gamesmanship in Carlyle's words as it's common for teams to build their opponent up prior to a series, but the Ducks certainly do have a lot to prove. This is the fifth season in a row that they've won their division, but in many of those previous years they didn't enjoy a lot of success in the playoffs, with the notable exception being in 2015 when they reached the Western Conference Final. Thus they know all too well that regular season success doesn't always lead to deep playoff runs.
Apr 11 - 8:51 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are struggling on the power play with only four goals in their last 63 opportunities.

The drought continued on Friday when the Ducks were unable to score on three chances. They currently have not scored in their last 15 attempts as well and that has to concern coach Randy Carlyle. "We’re in a kind of a dark area with the power play right now," Carlyle said. "The one encouraging point from a coaching staff is that we have been directing and getting pucks to the net and creating more with a shooting mentality. We have to continue to shoot it." That makes sense. They should shoot the puck more.
Mar 26 - 6:21 AM

Randy Carlyle earned his 400th career victory on Sunday.

Carlyle became the 36th coach to ever reach that milestone. The bulk of those wins - 309 of them - have come while serving as the Ducks' bench boss during his two stints with the team. "I didn’t really recognize it until the other night," Carlyle said. "It’s always nice but it’s a team accomplishment. I’m just very fortunate to be able to work that long in the league and to have coached some great players and good teams along the way."
Mar 14 - 8:01 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have now gone nine games without scoring on the power play.

A problem is that the Ducks have had two or less chances in six of the nine games. "If we continually accept being on the outside, we’re not going to draw as many penalties," Carlyle said. "That’s one of the issues for us. We’ve got to get inside and get into that battle area. Play more inside the critical area in the offensive zone."
Mar 6 - 6:50 AM

Ducks GM Bob Murray might be done making moves after acquiring Patrick Eaves on Friday.

The Ducks could afford to part ways with a young defenseman to further bolster their offense if they wanted to, but that doesn't mean that they will at this time. "I don’t feel I have to make another move, first of all," Murray said. "Yes, we have depth on defense. We have good young defensemen coming. I don’t have to do anything at this point in time with my defense. I don’t have to do a thing. I may have to address some situations at the expansion draft time (in June), but we’ll know more at that point in time." Anaheim is competing for the Pacific Division title with its 32-20-10 record. San Jose currently has a three-point lead in that battle and has played in two fewer games.
Feb 25 - 4:13 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are second in the league in minor penalties.

Anaheim has accumulated 213 minors, which puts the Ducks behind just the Calgary Flames' 236. The silver lining is that the Ducks also have the fifth best penalty killing percentage at 84.3, but this is still an area they'll want to address. "Obviously there’s long (line) changes and discipline, which have been two issues that we’ve raised and talked to," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "And we will continue because we can’t afford to have stretches in games and more specifically on the road and have success."
Feb 7 - 4:09 AM

Monday's game was Randy Carlyle's 300th win the Ducks franchise.

Of course, Carlyle hasn't done that over one stint with the team. He first became the Ducks' bench boss back in 2005, but was fired during the 2011-12 campaign. From there he spent parts of four seasons with the Maple Leafs. Anaheim hired him again over the summer. His total record with Anaheim is 300-196-70.
Jan 24 - 9:45 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have gone five straight games without a power-play goal.

This is a new problem for the Ducks as they have been very effective with the man advantage this season. Even taking their recent drought into consideration, the Ducks rank fifth with a 22.2% conversion rate. Still, it's something Anaheim needs to address sooner rather than later as the power play has been a big part of the squad's offense. In terms of five-on-five play, the Ducks are a middle of the road team with 71 goals in 42 games.
