No, the full quote

The hit was clean."

I had my head down. Ive got to be aware that Kronwall is standing there at the blue line. It was the end of my shift and I look up and hes standing at the blue line and Im focusing on the puck and hes very good at it."

I was kind of nave to think he was going to back up, obviously. It was a tough hit to take, but it was a clean hit and from my side, it was my bad. Those hits should stay in the game.
What he is saying is that he didn't think Kronwall would step up on him and he went ahead, full bore with his head and placed himself in a vulnerable spot.
