Game 2 morning skate – Colin Fraser on chirping, changes and centers

On if there’s any chirping going on between the two teams:

“There’s always a little bit of chirping I think, but we always talk about playing hard between the whistles.  Anybody can act tough after the whistles.  Really it doesn’t get much accomplished anyway, right?  So we wanna play hard.  You know our identity is playing hard as a team.  For sure there’s a rivalry with us, we’ve both been good teams for a number of years now, but I think the play does the talking more than the chirping.”

On how different Game 1 of this series was from the St. Louis series:

“I think it’s going to get harder.  Both teams, them having seven days off, us having four days off, maybe both teams were a little sloppy to start.  I think both teams are going to be better.  We won the game, we obviously got off to the right start, but I think we talked about being better at the same time.  Maybe that rush has worn off for both teams.  It’s probably going to be a harder game tonight.”

On if there’s any keys to the game with Stoll out:

“Yeah, Stolly’s a big piece to the puzzle.  He’s obviously our number one face-off guy, takes all the key draws, our top PK guy, with him and Lewie as a pair.  But with that being said, that’s why we got depth.  You know Richie’s sitting out, and Richie’s a heckuva’ player really to be sitting out.  You know, you put him on any other team, and he’s a regular in the line-up.  So he’ll be fine stepping in, and I think we just gotta play the same way.  Obviously it’s a big loss, but it doesn’t really change the way we play, it’s just that other guys gotta step up.”
