Team Canada West captain Massimo Rizzo (Burnaby, B.C./Coquitlam, BCHL) on his team’s bounce-back win and his shootout goal.
“It was kind of frustrating losing the first two [games]. We have been playing well and we had some good glimpses of the hockey we know we can play. To come out here and get that first win is great for our team, and now we can continue working toward earning a spot in the semifinals."
“I kind of had my [shootout] move in my head already. When I came down I faked a shot and saw some open net, and I when I got [the puck] up over the goalie it was a great feeling.”
