Put Rielly or Murphy with Wotherspoon or Harrington at all times and both will play better. Doesn't take a genius.
Kudos to Russia. They were the better team 5 on 5.
Agreed on your point about the coaching, but not on Murphy's effort on the GWG - he didn't even touch the guy! He has to at least attempt to put the body on Nichuskin there, swat at the puck, something. Watching the guy burn you to the outside is simply unacceptable.
