Ducks fire former Leafs coach Randy Carlyle amid 7-game losing streak

With Hart tying rookie record red-hot Flyers jump Ducks 6-2

With Hart tying rookie record red-hot Flyers jump Ducks 6-2

The Ducks announced Sunday that general manager Bob Murray would take over as interim coach for the remainder of the regular season.

Carlyle had two stints as Ducks head coach, the first stretching from 2005-12 and highlighted by a championship in 2007.

While the team says they'll look for their new head coach in the summer, it appears Dallas Eakins - who now serves as head coach of the team's AHL affiliate in San Diego - is the front-runner for the big-league role, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

"We thank Randy for everything he has done for the organization", Murray said in a statement. "We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that".

Finnish basic income trial creates happiness, but not jobs
The former IT consultant had been unemployed for almost a year before "winning the lottery", as she described the trial. The results for the second year of the experiment will be published in the first few months of 2020.

Carlyle led the Ducks to a 21-26 record this season, which ranks worst in the Western Conference. Carlyle was sacked after a slow start to the 2011-12 season and was hired by the Maple Leafs. He departs with a career record of 384-256-96 in 736 games with the Ducks.

Murray, a three-time finalist for general manager of the year (won in 2013-14), is 509-374-130 in 1,013 National Hockey League games as GM for the Blackhawks and Ducks, and the longest tenured and winningest GM in Anaheim history (445-279-101 in 825 games). He is the longest-tenured and winningest GM in Ducks history with 445 victories in 825 games. He signed a two-year contract extension with the club on December 8, 2018.

You don't expect to have to live through this stuff for an extended period of time.

Anaheim has been hit pretty hard by injuries and has endured down years from key members of their aging core, but this latest stretch has been tough to watch. The Ducks were second in the Pacific Division on December 18 after winning 11 of 13, but they have gone 2-15-4 since. Its loss to their Flyers on Saturday night was its 19th in the last 21 games.
