Must be something that keeps you from executing the easy stuff when it's stuff they've been doing since they started playing AAA. The more your being out skated the harder it is to do the easy things right
After the second goal when it was apparent Canada was rattled, that was Spott's time to call a timeout and settle down the kids. He didn't and the piss-poor play continued.

Not to mention that Spott and his staff had nothing drawn up to neutralize the attack of the US defense. Everyone and their dog knew that the US activated their D more than any other team which allows for the ability to create odd man rushes the other way if defended properly. Apparently the Canadian coaching staff never got that memo.

Spott should be fired immediately. He was a terrible coach.
