This is Spott on! Murphy's too plentiful minutes were the thing that bothered me the most. Also MacKinnon getting less ice time than MacNeil who had been cut from the team, what was with that. The coaching wasn't great, it wasn't even average. The U.S. were deserving winners with no doubt but it is the coaches job to have their team ready to play and this Canada team wasn't.
Also the Russian coach deserves criticism as well. I just look back to the final minutes of the first Canada/Russia game, his team was totally disorganized.
