from Jeff Miller of the Ducks Blog at the OC Register,
At the end of the loss in Phoenix, both Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne receiving unsportsman-like-conduct penalties. Selanne, though, attempted to bring some perspective to things about 15 hours later.
“You know, nobody died,” he said. “We still have to realize how lucky we are. We have to use the passion and fun to (fix) this problem right now. There’s no other way. You can’t just cry and cry and cry. You just have to find a way to do this together.”
The Ducks have lost five in a row and have only two victories in their past 16 games. They are 14th in the Western Conference and already eight points out of the top eight….
– The Ducks have held several meetings during their slide. They’ve met in big groups, small groups, one-on-one. They’ve met with the coaches and among themselves.
The meetings continued Thursday, Carlyle gathering Getzlaf, Ryan and Corey Perry in the locker room following the workout.
The coach, however, knows the talking only goes so far.
“There’s been lots of talk,” Carlyle said. “There’s been lots of speeches, lots of meetings. I think it’s time for action. Collectively, I think that our group has to act out the reality of going out and competing to a higher level.”
