They just flat-out sucked. No excuses. Team USA has been (and will likely be) better. Simple.

I think RNH has been fine. Its actually Drouin on that line that seems to be chasing a little more than necessary

Great period by Team USA.

Canada is still Canada though. Have to play better to hold that team off for another 2 periods.

Great flow to the games when the IIHF refs don't interject themselves into the action.

Great period, hope the legs don't fall off. The refs have stayed away thus far.

Remember folks, a 2-0 lead doesn't mean much in junior hockey. Canada started off slow and got punished. US looks much more organized and composed. I agree Spott should play the first line more but every time one of the wingers gets the puck the play dies.

Spott is a terrible coach, but this is mostly on the players. They're the ones on the ice, making the plays. Needless to say, they're embarrassing the nation right now.

Canada out worked in just about every area of the game in that period. Also, Captain America.

No, its more Canada being underprepared and making poor plays.

Some really suspect passing choices and forced plays really bit the Canadian squad in the ass.

i think there is one thing that we can all agree on and that is that finally the refs are letting the kids play.

USA dominated. Why don't we have any type of offensive system in place?


Let's turn it around next period. GO CANADA GO

LoL.

Number 2 especially, every time reilly is not on the ice a leaf fan is upset. Have not followed u.s. that closely though.

One of the issues with Canada's D is that there are too many "steady eddy" type D men. Harrington, Ouelett, Wotherspoon, Reinhart. These guys are top 4 defensive D men but offensively, they are lacking. The US D is completely different, all their best defensive guys are also their best offensive guys, guys like Jones and Trouba, who can both probably log 25+ minutes.

What a 1st period.

Galchenyuk has been invisible too. Hope he wakes up.

D was great. I thought Jones & McCabe had strong periods.

So IIHF changed rules about an ice-hockey match constituting of 1 period instead of 3?

Whenever Rielly plays it's with Murphy and Wotherspoon, and both players have been terrible. Don't think Spott has any idea what he's doing. He keeps thinking Hamilton is the #1D, change it up at least for a bit! Give different people more ice time. It's not working.
