On Nov. 27, 2011, the Ducks lost a seventh consecutive game, to the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, and Anaheim's coach then, Randy Carlyle assessed, “We just seem to be dead between the ears.” Three days later, after the team won for just the third time in 19 games, Carlyle was fired and Bruce Boudreau was named the new coach. Tuesday night, Boudreau's Ducks (7-1), riding a record-tying seven-game winning streak, start an eight-game road trip against Toronto (6-3), now coached by Carlyle.

It wasn't the shiny glass and steel of Honda Center that made Randy Carlyle feel nostalgic Monday. Nor was it conducting the Toronto Maple Leafs' morning skate beneath the Stanley Cup banner he helped the Ducks win in 2007. The sight of two people, anonymous to fans but touchstones to him, brought out the mellow side of this gruff, old-school coach when he returned to Anaheim for the first time since the Ducks fired him on Nov. 30, 2011. "When you meet the parking lot attendant, the guy at the top of the ramp that you know, and he's the guy that used to look after your wife and your kids when you came to the rink and he was always a big happy guy to say hello, it's an emotional time to see him," Carlyle said.

Randy Carlyle thought little of coaches before becoming one. "As a player," said Carlyle, who played 17 seasons in the NHL, "I thought a coach was a guy that stood on the side of the boards and drank coffee. " But he said he learned to love it because it was the closest thing to being a player. And now he will be close to the players a little longer. On Monday the winningest coach in Ducks history agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2013-14 season. His previous contract was set to expire at the end of this season.

Randy Carlyle, who coached the Ducks to the Stanley Cup title in 2007 but was fired Wednesday because of the team's prolonged struggles, said Saturday he has been traveling "an emotional road" since his dismissal and will take a brief fishing trip to Northern California before considering his hockey future. "We'll see," he said when asked whether he expects to coach in the NHL again. "I'm working on putting one foot in front of another for the next couple of days. " Carlyle's last game was a 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, which ended the Ducks' losing streak at seven games.

As bad as things have gotten for the Ducks this season -- and they nearly got very bad before Scott Niedermayer's overtime breakaway lifted them to a 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at the Honda Center -- General Manager Bob Murray said he had never considered firing Coach Randy Carlyle. Murray chose instead to fire some of his players, pulling off a series of trades aimed at now and the future.

Toronto may be the self-proclaimed Center of the Hockey Universe, but Anaheim has become the cradle of NHL coaches and executives, a position solidified last week when a former general manager of the Ducks fired a former Ducks coach and hired another former Ducks coach to salvage a sorry season. Maple Leafs General Manager Brian Burke , who put the final touches on the Ducks' 2007 Stanley Cup team, on Friday fired Ron Wilson — the Ducks' inaugural coach — and brought in Randy Carlyle , who coached Burke's Ducks to the Cup but was dismissed in late November during a season-sabotaging slump.

Mikhail Grabovski, cut loose by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday after a five-year run with the club, is like many talented hockey players. If you ask him a question, he's going to deliver a straightforward, often blunt answer. Players in the NHL don't usually point fingers at one another. They don't assign blame, they usually accept it. Grabovski, though, was clearly upset when Toronto bought out his contract and made him a free agent. The 29-year-old from Belarus was particularly unhappy with Maple Leafs Coach Randy Carlyle, a former coach with the Anaheim Ducks, whom he called an "idiot.

Just call him the short-order hockey coach. Not once, but twice, Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau has taken over an NHL team in the midst of the regular season and managed to stop the hemorrhaging, landing in the playoffs with one of those teams - the Washington Capitals, in 2007-08, an especially dramatic turnaround. Had the Ducks actually made the playoffs last season, the words "miracle worker" could have been attached to Boudreau's resume. They were 7-13-4 with Randy Carlyle and were 27-23-8 under Boudreau's watch.

Teemu Selanne's most-excellent, age-defying adventure was officially renewed for another installment. By Selanne. The forward who led the Ducks in scoring last season with 66 points, the man who turned 42 on July 3, let Anaheim know Thursday that he had decided to come back. Selanne, who is poised for his 20th NHL season, will make $4.5 million with the one-year extension, slipping neatly into the pay structure for the 40-something crowd. Selanne said there was some unfinished business from last season.

Hockey amnesia, indeed, can be a good thing. For the Anaheim Ducks. "I think we're thinking about forgetting everything," Ducks forward Bobby Ryan said Saturday after practice. "Pre —" He thought for a second. "Pre-Jan. 1, I guess," Ryan said. "That's where things kind of turned for us and we found our stride. So I think every other game, previously, we'll just take as a write-off right now. " The Ducks were finally home after a 15-day trip in which they were 5-1-2, punctuated by a shootout win against Carolina on Thursday.

Did the Ducks go into turnaround mode because Jonas Hiller became Jonas Hiller, the All-Star goaltender, again? Or did Hiller become Hiller again because the Ducks helped ease the way? Hiller would say it is a bit of both. "The biggest difference right now is everybody believes we can win, which I felt really wasn't the case in October and November," Hiller said. "If we were scored on, we were always worried about losing a game and never seemed to be really comfortable out there.

Most valuable player = mostly vanishing privacy. You would think a league MVP in a major, celebrity-driven market would see his privacy vaporize in a dizzying flurry of red carpets, photo drive-bys and TMZ blurbs. Thankfully, there are rare exceptions to that expected course of events. Corey Perry, the Ducks forward who is the NHL's reigning MVP, recently showed that his skill for anticipation does not lie only on the ice. He seemed to know where the question was headed after the first couple of words and got off his response in rapid-fire fashion.
