In the semi, Canada was hanging by a thread. Why?

I still remember that early Saturday morning. Canada were sitting comfortably on a three-nothing lead, already seeing themselves in the final when Slovakia began to speed it up slowly but surely. Even two incompetent Russian broadcasters noticed the change. Team Canada didn’t seem to. Then midway through the third session - yesss! Slovakia scores. Normally, it's no big deal, with such a comfie 2 goal cushion. But Canada somehow was degraded into a torpor, their star players looking like pylons especially in the final minutes they were in utter panic as the Slovaks idiotically missed two perfect scoring chances of forcing overtime.
Two qstns naturally arise:
Coould the leading team have escaped that humiliating last-minute agony if competently coached?
If Demitra had scored in the dying minutes, who would have won afterwards?
