The Anaheim Ducks were blown out by the Minnesota Wild last night by a 5-1 score. The game was never really close and the Ducks never appeared to be in it, so instead of doing a normal recap of breaking down the game and listing three stars, I’m going to post public opinions of the team, as seen on Twitter.
Let’s be honest, the best/worst would be heavily leaning to the worst side, there were not three stars of the game to talk about, and nobody wants to read about how this game broke down one play at a time. It was just bad all around.

There's a "Fire Carlyle" chant happening in Honda Center. So there's that— Anaheim Calling (@AnaheimCalling) November 10, 2018
Time for Ducks GM Bob Murray to stop being so patient. For every small step forward they take two or three steps back.— Helene Elliott (@helenenothelen) November 10, 2018
Not to belabor the point, but watching the #mnwild highlights again last night, it’s almost amazing how unaware and completely lost the #Ducks were in their own zone for pretty much 60 minutes.— Michael Russo (@RussoHockey) November 10, 2018
There are a lot of crummy teams in the league this season
And lastly, for anyone that wants to see how the team feels about these games, below are the postgame interviews from Ryan Getzlaf, Andrew Cogliano, and Randy Carlyle.
"I didn’t think we had it mentally tonight. The mental part of the game I didn’t think we had. We were losing pucks everywhere. Everything was going off the toe, and that’s up top."— Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) November 10, 2018

"It was just embarrassing. That’s the word we can use. There’s really nothing to break down."— Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) November 10, 2018

: "We didn’t seem to make a tape-to-tape pass, we didn’t seem to be able to execute, we didn’t get inside on anybody or win any of the 1-on-1 battles we’ve been winning our share of over the last little while. We were just a flat hockey club."— Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) November 10, 2018
