The Geese introduced that Carlyle was relieved of his duties on Sunday, at some point after the workforce suffered its seventh straight loss. Anaheim is within the midst of a completely depressing stretch, shedding 19 of their previous 21.
Taking up for Carlyle will probably be Geese’ normal supervisor Bob Murray, who will assume the function in an interim foundation for the rest of the season.
“We thank Randy for everything he has done for the organization,” mentioned Murray in a press launch. “Leading the team to a Stanley Cup and three conference final appearances, he has accomplished so much in Anaheim. Difficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable. We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that.”
This brings to an finish Carlyle’s second stint as Geese head coach. After teaching Anaheim from 2005–2011 and main the workforce to their first Stanley Cup win in 2007, Carlyle returned to the Geese’ bench in 2016 after a stint with the Maple Leafs. He departs with a profession document of 384-256-96 in 736 video games with the Geese.
Anaheim has been hit fairly onerous by accidents and has endured down years from key members of their growing older core, however this newest stretch has been robust to observe. They have the league’s worst offense when it comes to targets per recreation and have scored simply eight targets over the course of their present seven-game shedding streak.
And but, regardless of their large struggles of late, Anaheim remains to be within the playoff hunt. As of Sunday, the Geese are simply six factors again of a Wild Card spot within the Western Convention.
