Rielly has similar speed and agility but uses it differently. He has a higher hockey IQ than Murphy too, so he knows when to pass it off and when to skate it up at the right time.

Maybe so, but those two goals in that short amount of time was reminiscent of the famous 2011 WJHC gold medal collapse Canada had against Russia, so it doesn't really give me the utmost confidence in Ryan Murphy and Slater Koekkoek's shutdown ability.
