No one likes accepting a loss, especially with how crucial every game is now. But we’re definitely still remaining confident,” defenseman Mark Fraser of the Devils said.

We just want to play the type of playoff hockey that we know we’re capable of playing. It’s a long series, it’s going to be a physical series, and I think the team is still comfortable with where we are.”
