“It’s disheartening. Going into the tournament and looking at our roster, I
didn’t think scoring was going to be problem and ultimately it was. We
scored two goals, one goal and one goal and it’s hard to win. The guys
battled back hard tonight; I felt like the last two periods we had control
of the game, but we just couldn’t score and that seemed to be the issue
every night. Looking at all three games, we could have won all three. It’s
a fine line between winning and losing and it never feels good when you
Head coach Travis Green (Castlegar, B.C.) on a disappointing end to the
“It was a really fun experience. It was my first time representing Canada
and at 32 [years old] you don’t really think it’s an opportunity that will
come around. The guys battled so hard tonight, we had penalty trouble at
the start, but guys were blocking shots and working hard. That’s one of the
nice things about playing Canadian hockey is you never have to question the
effort with guys doing the dirty work and grinding away. It was unfortunate
we couldn’t put a couple more pucks in the net, but guys played hard and it
was fun to play behind them.”
