Gibson will occupy the crease for Thursday night's Game 4 in Nashville, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Gibson was handed a loss in Game 3 despite a strong 38-save performance, but the story of the night was how physical Nashville was with the 23-year-old keeper -- the Predators were able to crowd the crease and bump Gibson on multiple occasions, with one such situation directly leading to a goal. If the Ducks can protect their goalie and give him some offensive support, Gibson may be able to pull off his ninth win of the playoffs.
