Colin Fraser ready for ‘a tough barn’ in Nashville tonight

Colin Fraser LA Kings Jan 2013 MayorsManor
Forward Colin Fraser has faced the Nashville Predators 18 times in his career and picked up three assists along the way – with the most recent one coming during his last visit to Music City. He helped set up Drew Doughty that night in a 5-4 Kings win – which also stands as as Jonathan Quick‘s only victory vs. Nashville in seven tries.

Following this morning’s pre-game skate, Fraser shared the following thoughts…

– On keys to the game: “We felt we played a good game against them last (Thursday in LA), but we need to create more offensively. They’re a stingy team that doesn’t give up much and they have a (great) goaltender. So, I think keeping it simple, getting more pucks to the net with more traffic is key. He’s a big guy too, so we have to get more guys in front of him.

– On building off of Tuesday’s win: “We had a good start. We didn’t get the lead, but we started out well – which is key. We just did little things right. (Sometimes when you) try to force plays you do too much when you’re down. We just need to stick to our game plan, which I think we did better last game.”

– On the difficulty of playing in Nashville: “It’s a tough barn. I’ve played in the league five years now and it’s a great city to come to with great fans – they’re loud. I remember being with Chicago, first round of the playoffs, they’d do standing ovations here through the whole timeout, which I thought was pretty cool in a city like Nashville that maybe doesn’t get as much credit as it deserves.”

– On the style of his line, playing with Kyle Clifford and Jordan Nolan: “We just like to play with energy and play in the O-zone as much as we can. Try to wear teams down with hard work and being physical and hard on battles. Chip in offensively too when we can, but that’s not first and foremost. Consistency every shift.”
