For the fourth consecutive season, Bruce Boudreau’s Anaheim Ducks exited the post-season after losing a Game 7 on home ice. And while he may have kept his job following the past three heart-breaking defeats, the fourth Game 7 loss has cost Boudreau his job.

During his time with the Ducks, Boudreau had a record of 208-104-40, which puts him second in franchise history for coaching wins and first all-time in winning percentage among Ducks coaches.
