No, the full quote
The hit was clean."
“I had my head down. I’ve 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 he’s standing at the blue line and I’m focusing on the puck and he’s very good at it."
“I was kind of naïve 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.
