Bruce Boudreau thinks that games within the conference are tougher than non-conference games.
The Ducks opened the season with four games against Eastern Conference teams and played their first game Friday against a Western Conference squad. "There’s a lot of hitting," Boudreau said. "Very little space to go around. And it usually … it’s just a man’s game. You've got to be willing to take a hit and get it. Because it’s a tough one." There was a lot of pushing and shoving at the end of Friday's game against the Wild as Ryan Kesler went after Mikael Granlund, forcing the Wild's Zach Parise to intervene with Kesler.

Head coach Bruce Boudreau has inked a two-year extension with the Anaheim Ducks.

Boudreau is now signed through 2016-17. He's entering his eighth season as a head coach and has an impressive 312-143-62. However, his teams have a tendency to struggle in the playoffs after strong regular season showings. In fact, he's never coached a team past the second round of the postseason, which is something he'll need to do in 2014-15 to match the team's heightened expectations.

Eric Veilleux has joined the AHL Norfolk Admirals as an assistant coach.

The Admirals are affiliated with the Anaheim Ducks. Veilleux has been coaching in the QMJHL since the 2005-06 campaign and led the Shawinigan Cataractes to their first Memorial Cup championship.

The Anaheim Ducks might make a major trade in the very near future.

With the NHL draft looming, Ducks GM Bob Murray is believed to be in the mix for the Jason Spezza and Ryan Kesler sweepstakes. Landing either one of them would go a long way to establishing the Ducks as a team that can put forward two effective scoring lines. Anaheim has the 10th overall pick as part of the Bobby Ryan trade and might end up parting with it in order to acquire a top-tier center.

Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray was selected as the GM of the Year.

Murray was also a finalist for the award in 2013. Murray has constructed a young Ducks' team that is slowly becoming a factor in the playoffs. It helps that he was able to lock up Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf to long-term contracts.
Jun 25 - 7:54 AM

Anaheim announced the addition of Trent Yawney as an assistant coach on Monday night.

He recently served as the head coach of the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Norfolk. Yawney has 13 seasons of coaching experience between the NHL and the AHL.

The Anaheim Ducks will go on the road for five straight games three times this season.

That is the longest road trip the team will take although they will open the season with four on the road. The Ducks will play seven straight at home from the end of December to the middle of January.

The Anaheim Ducks will lose assistant coach Bob Woods as he will be named the new GM and head coach of the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL.

Woods came to the Ducks when head coach Bruce Boudreau was named the new coach of Anaheim in November, 2011 as both were fired earlier that season with the Washington Capitals. Woods received permission from Ducks GM Bob Murray to talk to the junior club as he wanted to become a head coach again, something he hadn't done since 2009 when he led the Hershey Bears of the AHL.

Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray is one of the three finalists for the general manager of the year award.

Los Angeles Kings GM Dean Lombardi and Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin are the other two nominees. Murray recently got a four-year extension after his team posted a 54-20-8 record in the playoffs. Under Murray, the Ducks have built a great farm system that they're only beginning to get the rewards of, so Anaheim should be a strong team for years to come.

The Anaheim Ducks have given general manager Bob Murray a four-year extension.

Anaheim is coming off a solid campaign where they came within one victory of the Western Conference Final. The Ducks have a solid and still relatively young core, but they do have some question marks going into this summer. The biggest one is what to do with their goaltending situation. Jonas Hiller was seldom used in the playoffs and probably won't be back, but do the Ducks feel comfortable going into the 2014-15 campaign with the promising, but relatively inexperienced duo of Frederik Andersen and John Gibson?

After the Anaheim Ducks were slaughtered 6-2 by the Los Angeles Kings Friday night, Bruce Boudreau's coaching record in Game 7s dropped to 1-5.

And Boudreau was flabbergasted. The Kings were ahead 3-0 after the first period. "The first period was like men against boys, quite frankly," Boudreau said. "They were bigger, stronger, faster, seemed more determined. We were on our heels. Everything that we said that we wanted not to do, we did."

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau is just 1-4 in Game 7s.

Boudreau has also never made it past the second round, but he's spent most of his career as a bench boss with the Washington Capitals. Game 7 against the Los Angeles Kings on Friday is a great opportunity for Boudreau to show that he's capable of guiding a team through a lengthy playoff run despite the fact that it never happened in Washington.
May 16 - 9:05 AM

The Anaheim Ducks won their fourth game in a row at the Staples Center on Saturday.

The Ducks have yet to lose this season on the home ice of the Los Angeles Kings. The problem right now is that they dropped the first two games at home and still have to play Game 5 and Game 7 (if necessary) at the Duck Pond.
May 11 - 6:52 AM

The Anaheim Ducks' second round series against the Los Angeles Kings will start on Saturday.

That will give Los Angeles some time to rest after overcoming a 3-0 series deficit to win in seven games against the San Jose Sharks. The Kings and Ducks have never played against each other in the playoffs.
May 1 - 9:16 AM

The Anaheim Ducks went 0-for-6 with the man advantage against Washington on Tuesday.

That contributed to the Ducks' 3-2 loss. They are now 2-for-48 on the power play in their last 15 contests, bringing their 2013-14 conversion rate down to 16.0%. "I'm disappointed in our specialty teams," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It's been our Achilles' heel. We don't score on the power play and we don't defend on the (penalty kill). It's something that we've got 13 games to correct or we’re in trouble."
