It felt like one of those awkward celebrity breakups that played out in the tabloids.
As the Anaheim Ducks reported to training camp in September, reports surfaced that legendary former winger Teemu Selanne, only a few months into retirement, had written a book that contained some damning and insulting comments about coach Bruce Boudreau and captain Ryan Getzlaf.

There was a stat that the Anaheim Ducks were vaguely aware of late Tuesday night. A two-goal lead isn't nearly enough of a cushion against a team that won twice in its last three games using a third-period comeback and is 5-6-0 when trailing after 40 minutes.
Sure enough, the Calgary Flames applied the pressure needed and cut the Ducks' 3-1 lead with 11 minutes to play. Later on...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- According to Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau, Game 5 is the most crucial of them all.
It's the most mental game of a seven-game series and the implications become much greater. As the Ducks and Kings prepare for the fifth game of the Freeway Faceoff series on Monday night at the Honda Center, Boudreau warned his team not to make the same mistakes they did in Game...
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- It was an important game to Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau.
It was only his second game against the team that he led to the 2009-10 President's Trophy, and his team wanted to come out and leave absolutely everything they had on the ice for their head coach.
But as has become typical with the Ducks, special teams struggled and the team couldn't quite come up...
Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau admitted he ''was as nervous as all get out'' to be facing his former team Monday night.
