Despite his team tying the game late in regulation and earning a point on the road, Boudreau was flummoxed by the kind of play that allowed the Blueshirts to take an early third-period lead in the first place.

"The mistakes we're making, this is the NHL, this isn't the Junior B at 14 years old when you expect that," Boudreau said, according to Dan Rosen of "This is the National Hockey League. Those guys gotta make better plays coming out of our zone."

Boudreau was likely referring to this errant pass by Jiri Sekac on what should have been a standard zone exit for the Ducks. Instead, the puck ended up in the back of Anaheim's net.


The loss dropped the Ducks to 12-15-6 on the season, good for last place in the Pacific Division. With only two goals for in the contest, the Ducks are stuck on an average of 1.85 per game.
