Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray announced on Tuesday that they have fired Assistant Coach Brad Lauer.
Lauer, who came on board with Bruce Boudreau, has spent the last three seasons with the Ducks. He primarily helped with their power play which placed 22nd and 28th overall in 2013-14 and 2014-15, respectively. While it's still unclear who will take Lauer's place, it seems that Murray may seek to tweak the responsibilities for Boudreau's assistants going forward. This will be the only change to the Ducks' coaching staff this summer. Jun 9 - 8:42 PM

Bruce Boudreau is expected to be back coaching the Anaheim Ducks next season.

GM Bob Murray didn't like what he saw in the last two games of the Western Conference Final against Chicago, but it's believed that Boudreau's job is safe. However, that won't stop Murray from evaluating his roster and his management personnel.
Jun 4 - 6:46 PM

Ducks GM Bob Murray wasn't happy with how Anaheim performed after allowing three goals to Chicago in the second period of Game 6 through to the end of the Western Conference Final.

"We did not react properly whatsoever. All structure — all everything — went right out the window," Murray said. "Wasn't impressed by it at all. The unanswered question is still the structure when we get under stressful periods. When you're not playing well, you have to fall back on your structure. It failed us in a critical moment. That's what I'm evaluating." As previously mentioned, Murray isn't ready to commit to retaining the services of coach Bruce Boudreau. The Ducks have had a lot of regular season success under Boudreau and they have gotten further in the playoffs each year, but as Murray said, the Ducks have also fallen apart at critical moments.
Jun 3 - 9:11 AM

Anaheim Ducks' GM Bryan Murray wouldn't comment one way or the other when asked if coach Bruce Boudreau would return for the 2015-16 season.

"I’m evaluating everything," Murray said. "I haven’t talked to the coaching staff yet. I thought the coaching staff made great strides this year." And in each of Boudreau's three seasons as Anaheim's bench boss, they've advanced a round. However this is the second consecutive season they've exited in Game 7 with a whimper. To wit, Boudreau now has the dubious distinction of having a 1-6 career record in Game 7's. Boudreau also has one season left on his contract with the Ducks.
Jun 2 - 8:45 PM

The Anaheim Ducks will be looking to play angry in Game 7.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau felt the Ducks were too tentative in their 5-2 loss to Chicago in Game 6. "What makes you play at your best is when you know you haven't played well and you know you're capable of doing much more," Boudreau said. "When I say 'playing angry,' you're mad at yourself for not playing up to your capabilities and maybe letting something slip away. That's what that means." Anaheim's done a great job of bouncing back so far in the playoffs as the squad hasn't lost back-to-back games. The Ducks will need to keep that trend alive to survive to the Stanley Cup Final.
May 29 - 9:02 AM

The Ducks have outhit the Blackhawks by a sizable margin heading into Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

Ryan Kesler believes that will pay off when the series will be decided on Saturday night. "Every hit that we've had, it's all for this game," Kesler said. "That's why we invested physically. And it's all going to add up for Game 7." The Ducks have registered 304 hits to Chicago's 209 after six contests.
May 28 - 10:41 AM

Anaheim has a 2-4 record in Game 7s with a pair of home losses that they insist won't enter their minds.

The Ducks lost Game 7s to Detroit in 2013 in the first round and to the Los Angeles Kings in the 2014 West semifinals. "You can harp on it all you want," winger Kyle Palmieri said. "It's a different group of guys in this locker room. Nobody's going to be talking about those last two years if you go out there Saturday night and just take care of business." Anaheim held a 3-2 series lead on both of those recent occassions just like they did against the Chicago Blackhawks this year.
May 28 - 10:20 AM

The Anaheim Ducks can feel the tension mounting in their series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

"I think you have tension out there when you have two really good teams competing, going back and forth, trying to string wins together to win this thing," center Ryan Kesler said. "You're going to get tension there for sure." Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau put it more bluntly by saying "there's starting to become a hate for each other." It's been a back-and-forth series with each team taking two games. The stakes have naturally been raised going into Game 5 on Monday.
May 25 - 9:16 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have yet to lose in regulation time in the 2015 playoffs.

The Ducks lost their third game of the post-season in double-overtime on Saturday and it was the second loss in OT to the Blackhawks as they dropped Game 2 in triple-overtime. Anaheim is currently 10-3 in the playoffs and they return to Anaheim for Game 5 Monday tied at two games apiece.
May 24 - 7:09 AM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau used Thursday's 2-1 victory over Chicago as evidence that Anaheim's a "great character team."

"This was a character win. ... For a tired group, it was a really good game for us," Boudreau said. Chicago was in the same boat given that they both had to endure the triple-overtime Game 2, but the difference is that the Blackhawks won that marathon game, so they had more momentum going into this contest. Instead the Ducks bounced right back and now have a 2-1 series lead.
May 22 - 9:28 AM

The Anaheim Ducks won their sixth straight game on home ice Sunday.

The Ducks took Game 1 against Chicago by a score of 4-1 to move to 6-0 at Honda Center during the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. In 2003, Anaheim won seven straight on the way to the Stanley Cup Final.
May 18 - 9:40 AM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau realizes that taking on Chicago in the Western Conference Final will be a tough task.

"In the last three years, if they had won one overtime game (against the Kings), they probably would have won three Stanley Cups," Boudreau said. "We're dealing with a team that knows how to win in the playoffs – knows how to play and has got the experience and the talent to back it up." Boudreau thinks counteracting the Blackhawks' speed will be critical in the upcoming series. The Ducks will be the underdogs in this series, but they're a talented team in their own right and are capable of challenging Chicago.
May 12 - 9:18 AM

This will be the first time that coach Bruce Boudreau has reached the conference finals in his eight seasons behind the bench in the NHL.

"It was pretty cool," said the Anaheim bench boss when Corey Perry scored in overtime to eliminate the Calgary Flames. "I was telling the guys in there that I thought I was pretty calm during the third period and overtime and then [Francois Beauchemin] and I jumped a solid four inches and then I thought well, maybe I'm not so calm, I'd better settle down here." He won the Calder Cup with the Hershey Bears in 2005-06 and was back in the finals the following season. If the Ducks are going to reach the Stanley Cup Final then they will have to get by the Chicago Blackhawks.
May 11 - 5:33 PM

Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau will only let his squad think about Game 5 and not get ahead of themselves and think about a possible matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Ducks lead the best-of-seven division final 3-1 and a win on Sunday will move them into the Conference Final against Chicago but Boudreau wants to finish off the Calgary Flames before any thought of the Blackhawks get into the minds of Anaheim. "I try not to think about it," Boudreau said. "I’m just trying to think – and I know it’s a cliché – about tomorrow. Because if you think about tomorrow and it goes successfully, then everything else will take care of itself and then you’ll have enough time to think about the other things. I haven’t put really any thought into playing Chicago at all."
May 10 - 5:48 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are the only team in the NHL playoffs who have yet to taste defeat.

The Ducks swept the Winnipeg Jets in the opening round and defeated the Calgary Flames on Friday so they certainly have had their way with teams from the Canadian Prairies. Game 2 is Sunday with Frederik Andersen in the Anaheim net with Karri Ramo taking over from Jonas Hiller in the Calgary cage.
