Will The Ducks Show Murray Enough?

After General Manager Bob Murray's comments, the Anaheim Ducks rattled off three straight wins beating Chicago, Minnesota, and Vegas. The Ducks still have a few more games before the trade deadline to continue to trend in the right direction to show Murray to go all in.


Bob Murray Bonanza - Interview with Hannah Spraker

Bob Murray was recently interviewed and the comments were unsettling for many regarding the Anaheim Ducks and the NHL trade deadline. Hannah Spraker of the Fourth Period joins us on the show to talk about Murray, the NHL trade deadline, and the status of the Anaheim Ducks!


Anaheim Roller Coaster

All aboard! The Anaheim Ducks completed their recent road trip going 2-2-1. The Ducks beat a red-hot Boston team, but then lost two out of three games to weaker teams. On this show, we talk about the inconsistency with Anaheim's play and how it may affect Bob Murray's decisions at the trade deadline.


Battle For The Pacific

The Anaheim Ducks have won three in a row and find themselves in a tight battle for a playoff spot in the Pacific Division. On this show, we discuss the forward lineup changes, the NHL All-Star game, and Player Safety Department. We also give out some fan awards!


Anaheim Against The World

The Anaheim Ducks beat the Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings. Andrew Cogliano returned from his suspension with major appreciation from the fans and Anaheim organization. On this show, we talk about the NHL Department of Player Safety's recent rulings, the upcoming trade deadline, and possible moves Anaheim could make.


Free Iron Man

This past week the Anaheim Ducks beat their rivals the Los Angeles Kings, but the victory wasn't without consequence. Andrew Cogliano was suspended two games for his hit on Adrian Kempe. On this show, we discuss Cogliano's suspension, Rickard Rakell making the All-Star game, and the acquisition of JT Brown.


Playoff Bound?

The Anaheim Ducks are currently 19-15-9 and are battling it out for a playoff spot. The team finally got Ryan Kesler back and is mostly healthy. We analyze the Ducks performance so far at the midpoint of the season and how we think the second half of the season will go.


Don't Count The Ducks Out

The Anaheim Ducks had a good start to their road trip beating the St. Louis Blues, but then dropped three in a row. The Ducks almost lost a fourth in a row when they blew a two-goal lead against the New York Islanders, but they were able to rally to win in overtime. Hampus Lindholm scored the game-winner and first career hat trick to propel the Ducks over the Islanders. On this show, we talk about the Ducks chances in the second half of the season. As the trade deadline peaks it's head...


Ducks Start To Get Healthy

The Anaheim Ducks were able to manage to earn at least one point in each of their last three games. The Ducks are finally getting healthy as they expect to get Ryan Getzlaf and Jakob Silfveberg back. We discuss the status of many players and what the Anaheim top lines could look like this week. Our hot topics this week include the NHL possibly coming to Seattle, the Vegas Golden Knights social media drama, and the return of the Wild Wing statue!


Henrique Pays Early Dividends

It's only been two games, but Adam Henrique has scored a point in each of those games. He was thrust into the top line center role with Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler still out. Henrique recorded two assists, as his initial goal against Nashville was changed to an assist. On this show we talk about the trade and share our thoughts even though it's only been a few games. We discuss player injuries and what the lineup could look like in a few weeks when Getzlaf and Kesler return.


Ducks Limp Into December

The injuries continue to mount as the Anaheim Ducks head into the month of December. On this show we talk about how the Ducks need to push forward in the coming weeks. We also discuss Hall of Fame night, Michael Liambas, and the Ducks NHL birthday video.


Selanne & Kariya: The Hockey Hall of Fame Duo

This past week Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Anaheim Ducks will honor the Dynamic Duo this Sunday when the Ducks take on the Florida Panthers. On this show, we talk about the Hall of Fame weekend and the importance of Selanne and Kariya to the sport of hockey in Southern California. We also take a look at the Ducks performance this past week and the importance of the upcoming week against Pacific Division opponents.


Close But Not Close Enough

The Anaheim Ducks had a rough week seeing their captain Ryan Getzlaf being placed on the injury reserve list. The Ducks also lost all three of their games each essentially by one goal. On this show, we talk about the areas the Ducks need to improve in order to be successful in the upcoming home games. We also cover the "distinct" kicking motion rule, the Matt Duchene trade, and the appearance of Big Bird at Honda Center.


Road Warriors

The Anaheim Ducks headed out on a four-game road trip and ended up earning six out of a possible eight points. It wasn't pretty with a blow out loss to Florida, but the Ducks still pulled out three wins including one against the red-hot Tampa Bay Lightning. On this show, we discuss Ryan Miller's huge performance in Carolina, injury news, and how the Ducks are shaping up in the division. We share our thoughts on the Ducks overall performance in the month of October and what to expect in the...


Ducks Look To Carry On Without Fowler & Eaves

Last Friday the Anaheim Ducks bounced the Montreal Canadiens out of Honda Center with a wild 6-2 win. The Ducks did lose Cam Fowler to injury in the game. To make matters worse the Ducks announced today that Patrick Eaves has Guillain–Barré syndrome, which causes the immune system to attack the nerve system. Both players have been placed on the injury reserve. On this show, we discuss how the Ducks will have to carry on without both Fowler and Eaves. We talk about the possibility of...


Shorthanded Ducks Forge On

The Anaheim Ducks started out the season with a four-game homestand. Despite having a depleted squad the Ducks were able to manage five points out of a possible eight points. Ryan Getzlaf and Patrick Eaves returned to the lineup while Nick Ritchie and Ondrej Kase were both injured. On this show, we take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of this team after having completed their first homestand. We discuss how we think the Ducks will do for the rest of the month while providing roster...


No Trophies For Preseason

The preseason has been a struggle for the Ducks and injuries continue to cause problems. On this show, Mike is on vacation, so Patrick from The Puck Guys joins the show to discuss the Ducks preseason woes with Eddy. We cover the entire roster outlook, preview the Ducks season and take a look at the other divisions across the NHL. We also discuss the hot topic of kneeling during the national anthem, Paul Kariya's return to the spotlight, and various rule changes in the NHL. Stay tuned for a...


The Kes-less Ducks

During the summer it was known that Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen wouldn't be available for the start of the NHL season. Now the Anaheim Ducks are faced with also being without Ryan Kesler for at least the first couple months of the season. The question for Randy Carlyle is how will his adjust his forward lineup without Kesler. Younger players are going to have to step up on defense and now an offense for this team. On this show we discuss which younger players could make the roster...


Bringing The Boom Back To Anaheim

This past week the Anaheim Ducks brought back Francois Beauchemin for his third tour of duty. He signed a one-year deal worth $1 million, including $500,000 in performance bonuses. On this show, we talk about the defensive implications of bringing him back to the organization and the possibility of other moves the Ducks might make. We also discuss the upcoming talent for the Ducks and who we think could make the team come this October. We cover the World Junior Summer Showcase, the Ducks...


Have The Ducks Done Enough?

The Ducks signed Cam Fowler to an eight-year extension and picked up Ryan Miller as a back-up goalie on July 1st. Since then the Ducks haven't signed any big name players in free agency. On this show, we discuss if the Ducks have done enough moves to get them deep into the playoffs next season. We also discuss the possibility of Corey Perry playing hurt this past season.
