Hitchcock: Blame the coaches
There are times when Ken Hitchcock can be perfectly frank. Thursday, when explaining Canada’s quarterfinal ouster from the Olympics a night before, he pushed that level to blunt.
Hitchcock, an assistant coach for a second straight Winter Games, offered no big philosophical reasons for his team’s early demise.
“From a coaching standpoint, it’s disappointing,” he said. “It’s disappointing in that building [Torino Esposizioni] in three games we didn’t score any goals.
“With the way Marty Brodeur played, we didn’t need that many goals. [The coaches] feel responsible. We’ll have do a review when we get some time away.”
