I don't even want to hear the ''they are rolling 4 lines so they can be fresh tomorrow'' stuff that the TSN crew was trying to sell. Housley will still play 4 lines tomorrow. Everyone who has seen USA play in this tournament knows it. He is a stubborn head coach on this regard.

Gally played better today. More involved. That assist was terrific and further proof he IS A CENTER.

But what can you do when you get barely 10 minutes of TOI? On virtually every single key PP, it was the Miller unit out there. In the first, Gally's unit was out there for a few seconds, the Czech took another penalty and on came the Miller unit for the 5 on 3. I honestly think that he played 3 shifts in the first 12 minutes of the game when it was still close.

There was a 4 on 4 shift late in the 1st where Housley went with Kuraly and Barber.

Just infuriating.
To say the least. But he's winning. Yet, he's one loss away to be bashed like there's no tomorrow. And it will happen tomorrow. I hope Canada crush them. Don't think it will happen with the US new confidence and all but that's my wish.
