But the Chicago Blackhawks kept coming at Andersen during the Western Conference Final, and they finally broke him.
Andersen looked shaky at the start of Game 7 and couldn't prevent Chicago from taking a four-goal lead on its way to a 5-3 win Saturday at Honda Center. Anaheim needed Andersen to be at his sharpest; however, most of the poise in net was shown by Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, who demonstrated the experience that Andersen is building toward.
"I think I've taken a step," Andersen said. "I'm still not satisfied. I learned a lot from last year and this year. It still [stinks]."
