That's Cameron hockey. Get a lead and then go into a defensive shell, instead of continuing to play the style that got you the lead in the first place.
And why the hell he didn't call a timeout after the 2nd Russian goal is a question that can never be answered appropriately.
The Russians deserved the win, but I'm pissed at the coaching from the selection camp to today. Canada left a lot of skill and talent at home, while they took a bunch of 3rd liners to the dance. I don't know if that would have made a difference tonight, but there were a bunch of empty nets missed early in the game, where it may have.
