While the Americans were disap-
pointed with the loss, Schock said that
he was happy to be a part of the game.
"It's a nice event, and it's a good expe-
nence" he said. "It's fun to play with
these guys that we don't normally get a
chance to see. To be honest, (Canada)
showed me something tonight."
After the game, an elated Darrell
Young, coach of Team Canada, talked
about "that Canadian attitude" that led
to his team's come-from-behind victory.
He even referred to Joe Louis as "our
building." While a cynic might remind
Young that Joe Louis Arena is, in fact,
n the American side of the Windsor
tunnel, the fans didn't seem to care. The
hugely-partisan crowd was clearly
behind the Canadians.
Young said he hoped the victory
would help bring credibility to Canadian
university-level hockey, and said he
hoped it would eventually induce more
young Canadian hockey players to play
for Canadian schools. Currently, much
f the top Canadian talent crosses over
to play for American colleges or heads
directly to the professional ranks.
Team Canada was made up of
Canadian-born players that compete for
Canadian universities. The American
team consisted entirely of seniors, how-
ever, and the Canadians had no age
restrictions, apparently to make the
game more competitive.
Mason said that while he enjoyed
oaching some different players, the
event needs some restructuring.
"I couldn't have asked for anything
more out of these kids. They really
played their hearts out, and it was a good
game. I'd like to see this event go on
again, but I'd like to see us on a level
playing field - which we weren't, this
time. If you look at how American col-
legeshave done against Canadian teams,
it's a different story. I mean, it's well-
ocumented. It's not even close."
