“I think all that music is drowning out the crowd response,” he (Ken Hitchcock) said of the special environment which exists at the IIHF World Championship that you don’t experience at a normal NHL game.

“Standing on the bench, it’s confusing,” he said.

“Fans are yelling and singing like they do in Europe and it’s going against all that canned music like we have in North America. I think the music is drowning out the crowd response.”

“The natural stuff from the fan bases and the canned music is combining to make a lot of racket.”

“What makes the world championships unique is the noise of the fan bases. Listening to those people is wonderful.”
