PP for USA here.

Nuge looks a little disinterested from what i've seen so far this game. Like he's just coasting.

Not sure why they are playing Murphy in the 3rd with a 2 goals lead, is one of the other 6 d hurt or something?

He is losing more puck battles than he does in an NHL game. He needs to dial up the intensity a notch. Maybe on this PP coming up.

I'm getting mighty sick of Schiefle looking for calls. It's embarrassing. Did it all of last game and here with that last hit.

lmao as the Americans self destruct just when they had given themselves a chance to get back in the game.
If Canada doesn't score here .... their PP has not been good tonight.

Yeah... that was pretty embarrassing. I don't get how you can do something like that, especially on national TV with replays... Do you really want to be labelled as a diver?


Also that setup with nuge and scheifele both behind the goal line is stupid. It doesn't work when you don't have anyone out front with a shot. They need to stop that. Anytime two of your most dangerous scorers are behind the net theres a problem.

Nuge with the cross bar and then the penalty to put the team down for the rest of the game.

Subban with the best performance from a Canadian goalie in this tournament in a long while. Just incredible tonight.

What a dive by the American player to draw that penalty, similar to Schiefele's dive against the Slovak. Just a shove and the diver went flying.

Interesting that RNH was angry and shoved the guy because he saw Schiefele got dumped at the corner with no call.

RNH dodged a bullet there. Also how can a junior team that has RNH on their PP be as bad as Canada has been?

Murphy is his point man.

RNH was terrible on draws tonight, I'd be surprised if he won 25% of them TBH. The whole top line left something to be desired tonight IMO. Did MacKinnon get hurt it seemed like he barely played in the 2nd and 3rd.

Fair enough. For an offensive d-man his hockey IQ seems poor, his passing isn't that great, and his shot isn't finding the back of the net. Yes he's a very good skater but he has left a lot to be desired in this tournament.

To be fair they were pretty good before tonight. Pregame show said they were a tournament best 4 for 10 in the first two games.
But yeah, they were awful on the PP tonight.
Mr Spott has some work to do.

Hamilton missed the net twice and hit the defenseman couple other times on those two 5 on 3s. He was the weak link on those 5 on 3s tonight.

He was either missing the net or shot when should have pass.

That may be true, but they couldn't even get anyone open on a full two minute five on three. That's sad.

Yeah, definitely got some work to do.

They're trying that 2 fwd behind the net passing back & forth play to set up the d in the slot, but the Americans and Gibson were ready for that probably after seeing the game tape when we scored one like that against either the Germans or the Slovaks.

Gibson also made some big saves too.

MacKinnon is one weird dude. His interview with TSN was hilarious.
