March 14 postgame quotes: Colin Fraser

On whether the hit he weathered was a “cheap hit”:
“No, not at all. I mean, you’re allowed to hit. It’s the NHL. I’ve got to kind of put an onus on myself and know he’s coming, which, obviously I didn’t. I’ll take a clean hit. If it was the other way around, I would have been trying to hit him just as hard.”

On whether he liked that Muzzin stuck up for him:
“Yeah, I think it’s good. It shows good signs of a team, being a close team. I’d do the same for him, and the same thing if it’s the other way around…I played with Burish. I know he’d have been doing the same thing for his guy. It’s one of those things, I mean it’s a big hit. He got me. I don’t know. I’ve got no excuses. He hit me pretty good.”

On how he feels:
“I feel good. Obviously, it didn’t feel good by any means, but I stayed in the game and we get a rebound on Saturday and get to play the same team. So that’s the fun of it.”

On how to limit goals against:
“We feel like we’re playing well, but we’re having too many breakdowns. If you’re going to get into run and gun, it’s going to be tough to win games. Never mind tonight – the last number of games, we’ve been giving up too many goals. So we’ve got to tighten up defensively. We’ve got enough skill that we’re going to get enough offense, but we’ve got to take care of our own – help our goalies, and take care of our own zone first.”
