Game 2 morning skate: Lewis – ‘Richie’s kind of a prick to play against’

On being comfortable with Brad Richardson stepping in:

“Yeah, played with Richie a lot so I kind of know how he is.  Gonna miss Stolly out there, but Richie’s kind of a prick to play against.  Great on the forecheck, has a lot of speed, and makes plays.  So we just gotta stick to what we were doing.”

On if Jarret Stoll being out will affect the team in the face-off circle:

“Yeah, definitely.  I mean he takes a lot of big draws for us.  So it’s a chance for a lot of guys to step up and really bear down.  It’s not just one guy winning the face-off, it’s the wingers too.  So as wingers we gotta help out tonight.”

On how a player finds a higher gear in the playoffs:

“I mean it’s what you live to play for here, is the playoffs.  Playoffs is a lot about people who don’t really score, maybe scoring a big goal or something.  So you just really bear down, and go after it.”

On who’s going to score first tonight:

“Colin Fraser.”
