The US's offense is operating on a much higher level than it was when we played the Canadians now that Gaudreau is clicking and the PP is one fire. If Canada takes penalties, then it could put them in trouble. Despite how good the USA PK has been, taking penalties against the Canadians is still a very bad idea.
I think the big question is whether the US is playing that much better than their back-to-back 2-1 losses against Russia and Canada or was the level of competition against Slovakia and Czech Republic that much lower? Guess we will all find out tomorrow. Nonetheless, it should be a close game as it always is between Canada-USA.
