In Skeijs defense, the US defense did a great job at blocking shots and taking away ice around Gibson (who was fantastic). It's hard argue that Housley picked the wrong guys.

Miller showed character, but lacked a bit offensively for sure. It's important to remember that Sweden doesn't have a tenth the pedigree of Canada or 50% of what Russia have. Given the competition, a little more mojo offensively were to be expected to be honest. But a little more explosiveness in his skating would help him alot, and he is still very young...

Anyway, what we should take away from this game is how clutch the kid really is.

Three of the best players on the ice, Johnny Hockey, Grimaldi and Sandberg, appears to be like 5'3. There are room for smaller players in the game today (Torts!).
