Ducks center Ryan Kesler says he believes in his teammates and the coaching staff

Here’s the reaction of Ducks center Ryan Kesler when asked Friday about GM Bob Murray’s statement that he’s going to be patient with coach Bruce Boudreau in the wake of a 1-7-2 start to the season:

“It’s nice to hear from your GM that he believes in this group, because we believe in this group. Everybody loves playing for Bruce and Trent (Yawney, an assistant coach). We have a good group in here. Like I said, the first six games, it’s a write off. The last three games, I thought we played really well. We outskated some of the fastest skating teams in the league. I like the way we’re trending. Once we win a game, the dam’s going to open and we’re going to see a lot of faces around here that are smiling, a lot of guys having a good time with it.”
