The Bruins were winning 2-1 in the final minute of regular time when Corey Perry scored to push the game to overtime...
BOSTON — The Anaheim Ducks were the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs last season and came within one game of reaching the conference final.
Despite having a 3-2 series lead over the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, the Ducks lost their conference semifinals series in a disappointing 6-2 Game 7 loss on home ice.

BOSTON — Stanley Cup success is often achieved through the NHL draft.
Of course, it often takes a little luck and several years of poor results to stockpile enough high draft picks to go through a proper rebuild, but this route is smarter than trying to build a contender by hitting home runs on July 1 in the free agent market.
The Anaheim Ducks, who are in Boston for a Thursday...
Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen has looked a little shaky since his return to the lineup.

He was pulled in the first period of Sunday night’s matchup against the New York Rangers after allowing three goals on seven shots. He has lost three of his last...

When the Anaheim Ducks made what many consider to be a very smart move and traded Bobby Ryan to the Senators a few years back the primary return in the deal was a talented young winger with a killer wrist shot and a knack for finding the back of the net. Everything was going swimmingly at first. He potted four goals in his first four games with the Ducks but then doom descended from...
