The Anaheim Ducks Are Prepared For Game 4

from Tim Campbell of NHL.com,

Focusing on the process, not the result, has given the Anaheim Ducks the ability to bounce back from all kinds of adversity this season.

They're counting on their resiliency to help them in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

The Ducks are behind 2-1 in the best-of-7 series.

"We found that when we took on the mantra that we had to be better than we were the last game, it just relieves the focus on the outcome vs. the process," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said Thursday. "What did you have to do in the game within the game? Was it your forecheck that made the difference? Was it your defensive-zone faceoffs? Was it your power play? Your penalty killing?

"Then look at the game that way vs. looking at the result. We're always going to focus on the process first, then the results should take care of themselves."
