Hard to judge this team losing 7-1 to Russia one day after beating Finland 7-2. Perhaps a 7-1 loss to Russia should be looked at as a marked improvement over a 14-0 loss. Didn`t understand the coach calling a 30 second timeout with 15 seconds left.
yeah, I had no idea the games were on huste. I watched a part of the Russian game too. I turned it on just when we had to kill off a 5 minute penalty with another 2 minute penalty in the middle. So I havent seen us in the offensive zone for at least 5 minutes. 7-1 is pretty much the usual versus the powerhouses such as Russia or Canada. it shows the true status of our junior programme. how on earth did we beat Finland 7-2 is beyond me however.
