    Ducks fire coach Randy Carlyle amid losing streak

    Mired in a two-month tailspin, the Anaheim Ducks fired coach Randy Carlyle. Bob Murray, the team's general manager, will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season.

    Carlyle, 62, was in his second stint with the Ducks and is the winningest coach in team history. He led the team to a Stanley Cup in 2006-07, his second season with the team. He was fired after a slow start to the 2011-12 season and was hired by the Maple Leafs. Toronto let him go in 2015.

    The Ducks have spiraled the past two months. By mid-December, they had 19 wins in their first 35 games, boasting the ninth-best record in the league and top record in the Pacific Division. Since then, Anaheim has gone 2-15-4, including a 12-game losing streak, which is the worst record in the league. Anaheim entered Sunday's action in last place in the Pacific Division. Before Carlyle's dismissal, the Ducks had lost seven straight games, and in them, they were outscored 37-8.
