Game 2 morning skate – Brad Richardson on salads, Stoll and Sutter

On if he’ll be getting a nap in before the game:

“Yeah, I usually do.  Try to get like an hour, so I’m sure I will today.”

On what he has for pre-game lunch and if it is the same every day:

“Not every day no.  On game day I do sweet potato, carrots, rice pasta spirals with meat sauce.  And then I do a salad at the end.”

On if he feels extra pressure to fulfill Stoll’s face-off role:

“No, I don’t think so.  I mean I try to do my best on face-offs, but you know there’s a lot of pucks sitting around there that you need your wingers to help you out with.  So I’m going to do the best I can on that.  We focus on their centermen.  Watch face-offs and study all that.  Do all our homework on them.  So we just gotta go out there and do it.  And everyone knows the wingers are always gonna be ready.  Those are a big help too on those.”

On it being Trevor Lewis’ fault then if he doesn’t win draws tonight (joking):

“No, that’s not the case, but I might just look at him and be like, ‘What’s going on?’  Even if it’s not going great, Lewie can jump in there and take face-offs too, but I’m ready to go on that.  We’ve been practicing that.  Practiced after practice again today.  Yeah, we know they’re big, but we want to do well.”

On what he took away from watching Game 1:

“I thought we played well.  We came out pretty hot, and they kinda seemed like they sat back at first during the start.  We came at them pretty good, but as the game got going we kind of reversed a little bit.  We kind of relied on our defense and Quicky a lot.  Obviously he did a great job, but we want to keep going, keep pushing the game in the offensive zone.”

On if Sutter gives him a talk, or just basically a pat on the back when he puts him in:

“Yeah, just basically a kick in the butt and ‘Get in there, and play well.’”
