Anaheim Ducks React To Their 7-2 Loss To The Calgary Flames

from Lance Pugmire of the LA Times,

When most everything else failed Wednesday night in the Ducks' worst meltdown loss of the season, a bare assessment of the situation was pure perfection.

“Every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed of how they played tonight,” Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano said. “To start one of the biggest road trips, to have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line … no one played at all. It's unexplainable.”

Valiant efforts in losses to Montreal, Pittsburgh and Toronto were one thing.

Making the fourth consecutive defeat a 7-2 rout to the lowly Calgary Flames, the Western Conference's second-worst team and the NHL's second-lowest scoring team, leaves the Ducks (43-16-7) now clearly grasping for a solution and clinging to their slight Pacific Division lead.

“You really have to look in the mirror,” Cogliano said after the Ducks gave up two short-handed goals. “If you don't, it's going to get bad in a hurry....

Trying to understand how that can happen in the race we're in.… I really have nothing,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. “They better do some soul searching.”
