"I was in college and we had Americans and Canadians watching the game together and it got heated, really heated," said Turco, who attended Michigan. "[New Jersey Devil and American] John Madden was my roommate and we had teammates over. It got pretty ugly. There were some mean things said between teammates that shouldn't be said and a few things got thrown around the house that day."
Team USA won the final game of a best-of-three series in Montreal. Canada returned the favor in 2002, beating the U.S. to win the Olympic gold medal game in Salt Lake City.
