Andersen is 68 games into this season and, although he has represented nothing but calm stability for Anaheim, it's fair to wonder how he will rebound after his shakiest game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
If Game 5 of the Western Conference Final represented any mental fatigue from his longest season, he didn't let on going into Game 6 on Wednesday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports). Anaheim leads the best-of-7 series, 3-2, and is one win away from its first trip to the Stanley Cup Final since 2007.
"I think I've always been good at bouncing back," Andersen said. "And I think [Wednesday is] going to be a great opportunity again. It's all about winning that one game and going to the Finals. That's all my focus is right now.
"I know how good I can be and I've shown that the whole playoffs. Maybe last game wasn't my best, but stuff happens when you're a goalie. It's about what you do next that matters."
