This is exactly what I was thinking watching the past few games. When they are dominating the competition you cannot expect the stay at home guys, and the goalie to really shine outside of a few plays. In fact he looked like he was trying to do things outside of his comfort zone, or he what he normally wouldn't because of the lack of necessity for playing a simple game.

There were a few positional mistakes and losing the puck on one goal US gave up, but I expect his game will be tested much more this coming week. Canada will be a good test for their defense and goaltending.
