GM Bob Murray said on Saturday that the Ducks have to get faster.
The Ducks were exposed in the playoffs by a faster San Jose squad and were eliminated in four straight games. "We just played a team that was way faster than us," Murray said. "And they played the game faster than us." Murray also said that coach Randy Carlyle would return. Apr 22 - 7:03 AM

The Anaheim Ducks unraveled as Game 3 got away from them.

The Sharks beat the Ducks 8-1 to take a 3-0 series lead. That alone is bad enough, but the Ducks also showed a lack of discipline by taking 20 penalty minutes in the third period. That prevented the Ducks from trying to salvage any positives late in the game that they might have been able to build on. It all wasn't lost on Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "From my perspective, it’s hard to forget what we just did," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "Very undisciplined. Very disappointed in our reaction in the hockey game. Those are the things we have to address. You’re not going to give yourself any kind of an opportunity when you take the number of penalties we took. And I call them selfish penalties." The Ducks will nevertheless attempt to avoid the sweep on Wednesday.

The Anaheim Ducks will get home-ice advantage in the first round as they finished second in the Pacific division.

The Ducks came on with a flurry at the end of the season as they were in a battle for a playoff spot before getting hot and passing the Sharks on the last night of the season. It will be the second time San Jose and Anaheim meet in the playoffs with the Ducks upsetting the Sharks in 2009 as the eighth seed.

The Anaheim Ducks want to host their first All-Star Game.

The Ducks have been in the NHL since 1993 and have yet to host the game. "We are definitely in the queue for an All-Star game in the coming years," Tim Ryan, the COO of the Ducks and CEO of the Honda Center told the Southern California News Group on Friday. "It’s definitely part of the conversation on a regular basis." Stay tuned.

The Anaheim Ducks have been sensational on the penalty kill of late.

The Ducks have killed off 20 straight penalties and 28-of-29 and that is outstanding. "I think Yawns (assistant coach Trent Yawney) has been doing a terrific job with the PK," Ducks right wing Jakob Silfverberg said. "And I think everybody that’s sent out there takes a lot of pride in it. Obviously, you want to see your numbers go up as a team. We’ve always kind of been a top team. And it’s good that we’re starting to creep back up." The Ducks are now eighth best in the NHL with the man-disadvantage after dropping to 15th before the recent hot streak.
Mar 4 - 6:57 AM

The Anaheim Ducks will travel to Las Vegas on Monday to face the Golden Knights.

Most, if not all teams, are usually in the night before to face an opponent but the Ducks are doing it differently this time around. The Ducks will not participate in a morning skate and will fly out to Las Vegas, bypassing the need to stay in a hotel overnight on The Strip. Vegas is 22-4-2 at home so perhaps this could work. We doubt the Duck players are thrilled with this decision by GM Bob Murray.

Anaheim GM Bob Murray thinks that the price to make a deal at or before the trade deadline is too high.

That's if you are buying and the Ducks could be in that position as they are fighting for a playoff spot in the West. "These price tags, it’s ridiculous," Murray said. "And the price tags just seem to keep going up every year. Whatever. Maybe it will get there, maybe it won’t. Time will tell. There’s still enough days left." Stay tuned.

Ducks GM Bob Murray hasn't been happy with his team's play this season and that's made them a question mark going into the trade deadline.

With a 27-20-11 record, the Ducks aren't in an ideal position to be a buyer, but they're still close enough to a postseason spot that Murray might be hesitant to sell assets for picks or prospects. "Our team play is not good," Murray said. "It hasn’t been. It’s been so inconsistent all year. We played a home game the other night against San Jose and they played the night before. It looked like it was the other way around. We just didn’t have a good team game. Far too many scoring chances and they controlled the play. … The question becomes, ‘What am I doing here?’" How the Ducks play over the next week and a half could ultimately inform Murray's trade deadline strategy. Anaheim will play in Chicago on Thursday, Minnesota on Saturday, and Vegas on Monday, so those could be seen as important games.

The Anaheim Ducks have yet to score in overtime this season.

As a matter of fact, Anaheim has won only twice in the nine games that have gone extra time as they have not won in three games decided in overtime and have won only two of six that have gone to the shootout. "It’s totally about puck possession and take your chance and go after it," coach Randy Carlyle said of the three-on-three play. "And we’ve been very apprehensive with going after it with any chance. Is there something we should be doing to stimulate more aggressiveness? Maybe so. We’re not happy that we given up some points that have been available. We’ve missed those points."

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.

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.
