Ducks GM says he's not considering coaching change 'at this time'
Randy Carlyle's job appears safe for now.
Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray said as much after his club lost its 11th straight game Sunday, falling to the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 in overtime.
"While it's not my preference to make comments on this topic during the season, our recent play has led to many questions. Our fans are frustrated, rightfully so, and deserve a response from me," Murray said in a statement following the defeat.
"At this time, I am not considering a coaching change," he continued. "I am more focused on our players, specifically with who is going to step up in this situation. The way we played (Sunday night) was a step in the right direction, but we need much, much more. We have higher expectations for this group, and they should expect more from themselves."
Despite the lengthy losing skid, the Ducks remain within striking distance of a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
