Thought the entire USA team looked flat, and Housley seemed reluctant to change anything. Canada didn't look much better and looked miserable on their extended 5-3 power play advantage.

Funny how RNH isn't taking much heat for an unnecessary cheap shot along the boards that could have easily led to the USA tying the game with a minute left.

Jacob Trouba has been by far the best defenseman in the tournament that I've watched so far... Kid plays nasty, has a great shot, and is pretty decent defensively. Reinhart wasn't impressive today for Canada, and hasn't impressed me much at all so far... Harrington is solid back there though, and plays a rock steady game.
This game was watched through the Galchenyuk lense, there wasn't much difference between the teams it came down to a gem by Subban. Could have gone either way . As for the USA they will beat the Slovaks and will be completely back in the race.

Problem with the Internet bowmans is the already inflated expectations they themselves place on a kid who needs to develop no differently than anyone else.
