I didn't think any Yank had a good first period. Seem to have picked it up here.

Horrrrible give away by Jones last shift. An instance where he needs to use his head, and make a smart play.

I know he's a Habs prospect, but the kid is still a beast.

We picked 5th and still got the second or third best prospect of the draft at this point. No shame in that.

I hope the coach is just trying to get him out of a funk against easier teams. You can't expect to win when you give Murphy big minutes against teams like Sweden and Russia etc.

If he can't get it going, it's time to lower his workload.
Yea Reilly should be getting his ice time. But Murphy plays for Spott in Kitchener. So Spott is probably used to him and knows what he is getting with Murphy.

I'm guessing Reilly will get more as the tournament progresses.

He's getting shut-down by Seth Jones, who can actually match him stride for stride. And of course because of the type of player he is, he is now trying to take into his own hands and is not using his linemates. It's completely selfish, and a good example of when being competitive can be a negative attribute.

His first mistake in this game, but I agree with you here.

Yes; Lipon threw the knee the other day.

Anyway, this is a good thing for Canada, since losing players to suspension appears to be what it'll take to get Drouin and Mackinnon together on a line.

This is a weak justification for an inferior player, particularly one who is inadequate defensively.

I'm not saying this is your argument, but it appears to be what everyone is thinking or using to rationalize Spott's decision to play Murphy.

I disagree. His linemates have failed to help him offensively.

I tried to resist checking the score when I got into work today, since I PVR'd the game to watch later, but that lasted all of 5 minutes

Saw Rielly with a goal and two assists and was immediately pumped, glad to read he had a great game .. Hopefully he keeps stepping it up as the competition gets tougher

Great period of hockey. USA played much better this period.

Two things: Seth Jones has two turnovers... and Makarov is impressing me.

He's made two big turnovers, thankfully the goalie got his back.

No one can replace Pierre's creepiness though when it comes to man-crushes on the junior players

Jones looking like Lebda. Not moving his feet, just waved at Nichushkin. Hockey's equivalent yo an arm tackle in football.

Shake it off kid..

Makarov is really good. Scary good. USA need to get a man in front of him. Too many clean looks.
