Thursday practice – Colin Fraser on Blackhawks and Voynov

On what to expect from Chicago:

“They’re a fast game team. They’re a team that likes to put the pressure on with speed and keep it on. Our identity of a team is to be fast but to be physical as well. We have to counteract their speed and hopefully slow them down with our physicality. (Reporter: “Sandpaper effect?”)… “Sand paper effect. I think it’s no secret that’s what our identity is as a team. We have lots of skill too, I mean we got Kopi (Anze Kopitar) and Brownie (Dustin Brown), Willie (Justin Williams), those guys are skilled players. Cartsie (Jeff Carter) they’re skilled guys but they’re big guys that can play

On Slava Voynov’s play:

“He quietly slides through the radar, i think. When we have guys like Dewey that gets talked about all the time, and Slava’s able to do what he does very well without getting talked about a lot. I think, in my opinion, he’s a very underrated player. He scored some big goals for us and he’s really, all season long he’s been good, and  obviously in the past he’s stepped it up even more.”

On Voynov playing against bigger guys:

“I think he’s just a smart player. He can play against those top lines. He just kind of quietly goes about his business. You don’t really notice him all that much out there,  he’s not out there toe dragging guys or being fancy. He’s just a smart player, he to always be in the right position. He’s physical when he needs to be, but he’s good at breaking pucks out. He just does the little things well that kind of go unnoticed.”
