NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Randy Carlyle is giving his Anaheim Ducks a day to rest up. The time off also might help them forget a loss so ugly that Teemu Selanne blistered his teammates in the locker room.

Nashville might not want the time off. The Predators, up 2-1 in the series, are known for their defense but have matched the vaunted Ducks’ power play success.

Coach Barry Trotz kept them off the ice Monday with a two-day break before Game 4 on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old Selanne could be playing in his final postseason.

He says that’s how he’s looking at it and that means taking advantage of every game. It’s also why Sunday night’s 4-3 loss bothered him so.

Selanne says the time off will help and predicts new Ducks will show up in Game 4.
