Randy Carlyle has seen a lot in his coaching career, but even he is surprised by how prolonged the Anaheim Ducks' slump has been.

"You don't expect to have to live through this stuff for this extended period of time," Carlyle told reporters after a 6-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday, according to NHL.com's Adam Kimelman.

The defeat was the Ducks' seventh straight and 19th in their last 21 contests..
