He's getting shut-down by Seth Jones, who can actually match him stride for stride. And of course because of the type of player he is, he is now trying to take into his own hands and is not using his linemates. It's completely selfish, and a good example of when being competitive can be a negative attribute.

His first mistake in this game, but I agree with you here.

Is Lipon the player who threw the knee the other day?
Yes; Lipon threw the knee the other day.

Anyway, this is a good thing for Canada, since losing players to suspension appears to be what it'll take to get Drouin and Mackinnon together on a line.

I'm guessing Reilly will get more as the tournament progresses.
This is a weak justification for an inferior player, particularly one who is inadequate defensively.

I'm not saying this is your argument, but it appears to be what everyone is thinking or using to rationalize Spott's decision to play Murphy.

I disagree. His linemates have failed to help him offensively.
