As for this game, the reffing was horribly biased for Canada as was expected.
I wouldn't say horribly biased, horribly biased was game 1 in Quebec (the only thing that kept Russia from scoring in double digits). Last night was a typical home refereed game, nothing crazy a few calls going Canada way, a few non-calls on Canadian players. The main reason for the loss is apathy and flatness of the Russian team. They looked disinterested, didn't fight through the adversity, and were failed by the coach, with the offensive lines and defensive pairings. With all that, they only loose by 1 goal (to yes a tired Ontario team). On Canada nobody impressed but Sheifle, the rest is grey mass of skaters/checkers, who try to to do same thing over and over.
