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." Mar 19 - 9:01 AM

The Anaheim Ducks were willing to offer the Vancouver Canucks top prospects and picks for Ryan Kesler, but the sticking point might have been the lack of a roster player on the table.

"I wasn't going to and did not offer any player off this roster," Ducks GM Bob Murray said. "I strongly believe, and I can't say it enough, that this team is good enough." Kesler didn't end up getting traded to any team and Anaheim wasn't able to get a top-tier forward before the deadline.
Mar 6 - 9:17 AM

Don't be surprised if the Anaheim Ducks make a big splash before the deadline.

By trading away Dustin Penner and Viktor Fasth while acquiring Stephane Robidas on Tuesday, Anaheim has freed up some cap space for another move. They are believed to have interest in adding a top-six forward with Ryan Kesler being their top target. They might alternatively pursue Matt Moulson or Thomas Vanek.

With his team's 1-0 triumph over the St. Louis Blues Friday night, Anaheim's Bruce Boudreau recorded his 300th victory as an NHL coach.

No coach has reached that milestone faster than Boudreau. Boudreau was pleased Friday night with his team's hitting, led by defensemen Ben Lovejoy (six) and Mark Fistric (five), and its ability to block shots. Defenseman Francois Beauchemin led the Ducks in that category with five.

The Ducks are the only team with players on all four teams remaining in the medal hunt at Sochi.

That means that Ducks players will be coming home with three medals no matter how Saturday's Bronze Medal and Sunday's Gold Medal game turn out. The Bruins, Blackhawks, Avalanche, Rangers, Coyotes, Penguins, Blues, Sharks and Cancuks have players on three of the four remaining teams.

After losing three of their last four games, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau isn't happy with the suggestion that the upcoming Olympic break is distracting his team.

"Whatever it is, it's an excuse," Boudreau said. "It may be true. I don't know. I'm not distracted. … If it is, then we got to change it. Because it's not right. Why isn't Columbus distracted? Why wasn't Dallas distracted? They all got guys going to the Olympics. They got guys waiting for the break. If we're winning the games, nobody's talking about distraction." The difference between Anaheim and teams like Columbus or Dallas is that these games are critical to the latter two teams. Even after dropping three of four contests, the Ducks have a nine-point lead in the Pacific Division. This is a hard time for teams to stay motivated when they've basically locked their playoff position.
Feb 4 - 6:30 AM

Coach Bruce Boudreau is not happy with the play of late of his Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks are 3-3 in their last six games including two losses at home and Boudreau is unhappy. "It doesn't become tougher to see the warts," Boudreau said. "It becomes tougher to accept the warts." Boudreau also said that the Ducks were outplayed in their two wins over the Kings. Look for the Ducks to turn things around quickly as they still are the top team in the NHL.
Jan 30 - 7:13 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are interested in being active buyers before the trade deadline.

"You're always trying to get better," Ducks GM Bob Murray said. "You're never satisfied. You talk about things. Lately, our play has not been as good as it was early in the year when we were banged up. So you're saying, 'OK, what do we do to improve that?' I continually talk to coaches about our team play. … We'd like to see our team play better before we make decisions on individuals." The Ducks have two first round picks and two second round selections in the upcoming draft, so they do have some chips to work with. Anaheim currently leads the pack with a 39-10-5 record.
Jan 28 - 9:20 AM

The Anaheim Ducks suffered their first regulation loss at home on Tuesday.

The fact that they started the season with a 20-0-2 run at home is incredible. With a 37-10-5 record overall, Anaheim seems like a great bet to win the Pacific Division. The larger question is if they'll be able to live up to that seed once the playoffs start or if they'll struggle like they did in 2013.
Jan 22 - 9:24 AM

Although Anaheim has been dominate offensively, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau felt that Sunday's 1-0 victory over Detroit was particularly important.

"We’ve really talked about having a one-goal or zero-goal game against," Boudreau said. "Because we've been doing two and three. We've just been scoring a lot of goals. It sometimes masks deficiencies defensively. To be able to get a 1-0 win and get it like that, where you had to defend in the third period, I thought was really good." Saku Koivu added that the Ducks aren't likely to be able to pull off the same kind of come-from-behind victories that they've enjoyed lately once the playoffs start. For that reason, being able to pick up these low-scoring, one-goal games is important.
Jan 14 - 9:01 AM

The Anaheim Ducks hope to play a more physical game against the San Jose Sharks in their rematch on Tuesday.

The Ducks 10-game winning streak came to an end with a 3-1 loss to San Jose on Sunday. "It's not a direct response to last night," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said of the desire to play a more physical contest. "It's the way we're supposed to be playing, but we've been getting away with playing soft games. And when you play the big teams … you have to be physical or they're going to win all the battles." Anaheim is halfway through their schedule with a 28-8-5 record.

Bruce Boudreau is looking forward to playing in Washington on Monday.

It's an opportunity for Boudreau to get a little bit of revenge against the team that fired him in 2011. Boudreau has done a great job with the Anaheim Ducks since taking over and they're a formidable opponent with a 26-7-5 record. For his part, Capitals GM George McPhee isn't surprised that Boudreau got another chance in the NHL or that he's excelled with the Ducks. "It's a very good team," McPhee said. "Terrific personnel. And he's the right guy to be coaching that team."

A 1-0 overtime win for the Anaheim Ducks Friday night gave the team its best home start (9-0-1) since in the franchise's history.

Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau marvelled at his goalie's performance in the game, as well as the performance of the goalie for the losing team, Tampa Bay. The goalies were Jonas Hiller for Anaheim and Ben Bishop for the Lightning. Hiller stopped the 31 shots he faced. Bishop allowed only the overtime winner to Ryan Getzlaf with 5.2 seconds left in overtime. "I didn’t think anybody was going to score on those goalies," Boudreau said. "That was probably as good a goaltending display from both goaltenders I’ve seen in a very long time."

The Anaheim Ducks power play continues to flounder as they have converted only three of 44 chances.

They are an NHL worst at 6.8 percent and could use a quarterback like the injured Sheldon Souray but he is not close to returning to action at this time. Coach Bruce Boudreau says that they are close to a breakthrough. They play the Blue Jackets on Sunday.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 06:19:00 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have converted on a league-worst 4.8% of their power plays.

The Ducks did show signs of improvement on Sunday with the man advantage, even if they didn't end up with a power-play goal. The news is also easier to swallow given that they're off to a 4-1-0 start. Anaheim enjoyed one of the league's best power plays last season and we don't see them staying in the NHL's basement for long.
