Against this tired US D we should've worked it in the US zone and just cycle and possess puck. On the shifts we did this the US were exhausted and bent over. A couple more long shifts in US zone and we would've had more goals. Canada did make adjustments in the 3rd and really limited giving the puck away.
It was incredible seeing Canada consciously move away from that in the 3rd and just make a few minor adjustments defensively but still dominate the puck.
