Ducks Notes: Randy Carlyle blames late lapses, failure to work in unison for ineffective penalty kill

ANAHEIM – No team had finished with the NHL’s top power play and penalty kill for 21 years until the Ducks did it last season so expecting them to duplicate that a year later is an unreasonable request. A sluggish power play is something Ducks...

Ducks goalie had embarrassing reason for not playing in relief

Goaltending can be a crap job. Literally. The Anaheim Ducks were blown out 8-3 by the Calgary Flames on Sunday night. Goaltender Jonathan Bernier was shown little mercy, letting in all eight goals on just 25 shots. The Ducks didn’t pull Bernier despite the poor effort. But why? Well, John Gibson, who was backing up Bernier, couldn’t come into action because he was battling diarrhea...

Kase Gives Ducks Surprising Depth

An exodus of forward talent over the summer raised serious questions about the Anaheim Ducks’ offensive depth going into 2016-17.

The Bright Spots in Ducks Inconsistent Season

The Anaheim Ducks season so far can be summed up in two words: Consistently inconsistent. We are a quarter into the 2016-17 season and the Ducks sit second in the Pacific Division with a 11-8-4 (26 points) record entering Thursday’s contest in Vancouver. Anaheim got off to a slow 0-3-1 start but since have gone 11-5-3 and are on a two-game winning streak after the 2-1  win over...
