Minutes after beating the spine by the score of 2 to 1 in Herning, Denmark, the representative of Uncle Sam emptied her bag while those of the maple leaf celebrated, gold at the blow.

“I believe that several members of their team play comedy, reproached Roque, whose remarks were taken up by the Sportsnet network. I find that ridiculous. That’s not the way we play hockey.”

“We play with aggressiveness and discipline. This is what defines us.”

One can question the legitimacy of Roque’s remarks, since the Canadian team only benefited from a numerical advantage more than their rivals in the final.
