The first period was maybe the worst period I have ever seen Canada play at the juniors. Puck focused, brain dead defensive play, terrible puck management, incoherent breakout schemes, and the inability to complete a pass were all apparent in spades in the first, and that set the tone for the game.
The team was just flat out unprepared.
You could see that one team was well coached, well prepared, and all bought in fully to a very strong system. Canada? Based on this game I'm not completely sure they were even playing a system.
It's time for Hockey Canada to audit how we choose our team, head scout, and coaching staff, because we've been following the same damn script for three years now, and it's embarrassing.
I agree they played not great in the first but we didn't just lose by 1 or 2 so that's on goaltending
