Janssen impressed by Fraser bout

Cam Janssen scored it a decisive win for Mark Fraser.

Fraser stepped up in a big way Thursday, when he dropped the gloves and came out on top in his fight with Ottawa's Zenon Konopka.

Fraser, in the lineup for just the fourth time this season, took care of business by bloodying Konopka, who received an instigator. The Devils had come back from a 3-0 deficit and gotten the go-ahead goal from Ilya Kovalchuk for a 4-3 lead when the fight occurred.

"That was a great fight," Janssen said Friday. "Konopka didn't look good after that one."

Fraser was in the lineup for Andy Greene (non-displaced toe fracture), who's set to miss four weeks. 

"We talk about what we need to do on the ice when we get out there," Janssen said. "That's one of the things he needs to do, stick up for his teammates and answer the bell when it's needed."

Konopka's no stranger to fisticuffs. He leads the NHL with 99 penalty minutes in 23 games.

"Certainly with my teammates, they respected it a lot," said Fraser. "Konopka and I have fought before and I did well the first time, as well. It's an element to my game that I want to continue to bring and if you succeed against tough opponents, I'll get some recognition, but I'm really just trying to do things to motivate my team."
