Post-Game 3: Colin Fraser – ‘We came within a whisker’

On his thoughts of the last two calls: 

“It’s a tough call to go down 5-on-3 with 30 seconds left in the game. If Lewey (Trevor Lewis) gets pushed into the goalie. But he sees it how he sees it and we came within inches of killing it off and getting a big momentum swing.”

On multiple 3rd period line changes:

“Yeah he does that from time to time just trying to get something going. I think they started kind of taking the game over mid, probably, second half of the second period. We had a couple guys that missed a couple shifts for equipment or whatever reasons. I think Richie’s playing a good game a guy like Richardson (Brad Richardson) steps up and he’s playing good and he’s leading our team in shots on net there for awhile. Darryl just tries to get something going and he’s not afraid to mix it up quite often.”

On if going into overtime was all about killing the 5-on-3 penalty:

“I think it could have been a huge, huge momentum swing to kill that off. The game could be ours and we came within a whisker of doing that. I thought we did a great job on the penalty kill, obviously the 5-on-3 they didn’t really even get any good looks. And the 5-on-4 was getting close to the end and bang, bang, play it goes into the net. Two power play goals, they win 2-1.”

On getting two days off:

“I guess in our first series we played every other day. To get the two days off, maybe it helps us after the loss in the sense that we can reload and re-energize  I mean, we’ve played a lot of hockey, but so have they. Every team is in the same shoes. It’s not really an excuse to be tired or whatever. I think the two days off is good.”
