Ducks vs Capitals MORNING RECAP: Making Scott Proud

Ducks vs Capitals MORNING RECAP: Making Scott Proud

Records broken, banner raised, and the Ducks dominate the defending Stanley Cup champions. Tonight started with an incredible moment for Ducks fans alike: the raising of Scott Niedermeyer’s jersey number. The #27 immortalized in the rafters of the Honda Center in Anaheim California (way cooler than New Jersey). A lot was expected out of the Ducks to make this night as memorable as possible, and they did not disappoint one bit. In fact, I would even say they exceeded expectations in terms of making the night exciting and unforgettable. Despite giving up the first goal, the Ducks had a...

Ducks vs Bruins MORNING RECAP: No Luck Against Boston

Ducks vs Bruins MORNING RECAP: No Luck Against Boston

Ducks can’t solve Halak, lose to Bruins 3-0. After ending their losing streak with a win against Vancouver, the Ducks couldn’t continue their progress as they fall to the Boston Bruins 3-0. The Ducks did put up a solid effort in terms of offense, but just couldn’t get one past Jaroslav Halak. They were getting the chances, outshooting the Bruins overall, and it seemed like they were just one bounce away from really hitting a scoring stride. Some costly penalties and poor plays on defense killed their momentum and they just ran out of time to make something happen. 1st Period The...

Ducks vs Bruins PREVIEW: Test Number Two For Mr. Murray

The Ducks will host the Bruins as they try to keep Bob Murray undefeated as head coach Game 58 Date: Friday, February 15th, 2019 Time: 7:00 PT / 10:00 ET Location: Honda Center TV: PRIME, ESPN+, SN Radio: AM830 Your Enemy: Stanley Cup of Chowder The Anaheim Ducks waited until Randy Carlyle was gone to do exactly the thing that Randy Carlyle had been asking them to do since mid-December, and that’s win a close, low-scoring hockey game. The Ducks’ former head coach had been preaching that the Ducks needed to be tighter defensively until they could find a way to turn around their...

The Ducks will need a real coach. Who’s it going to be?

The Ducks will need a real coach. Who’s it going to be?

New coach, new Ducks. I mean new GM-coach, new Ducks. Wait… no. New coach, new Ducks. As the Ducks prepare to kick things off with their new GM/coach, Bob Murray, let’s take a look at some of the potential coaching options. This list is not in any particular order and is purely speculative on my part. If there is someone I left out or another name you’d like to see considered, please leave a comment.

Ducks vs Canucks RECAP: New Beginnings

A night of firsts helps the Ducks snap their seven-game losing streak. It would be completely understandable for the Ducks to have had some nerves heading into last night’s game. Having returned home to their coach being fired from a disastrous five-game road trip and the guy who signs their contacts behind the bench instead, there was certainly plenty of changes to get used to. Unlike previous games, however, Anaheim fought out of the gate to have the start they wanted. Jakob Silfverberg finally added onto his team-leading goal total when he put a quick pass from Derek Grant behind the...

When the General Joins His Men in the Trenches

When the General Joins His Men in the Trenches

There’s still more questions than answers, but Bob Murray believes the best way to fix this team long-term is from ice-level. After what felt like 12th opportunity to fire a coach presiding over one of the worst stretches of play in franchise history, Randy Carlyle was finally fired for the second time in team history. And instead of promoting an assistant in the interim or having a replacement ready, General Manager Bob Murray decided to take the reins himself behind the bench for the first time in his professional career. It’s highly unlikely that this move is about contending. In...
