Don't see how last night's game was a fluke or how Russia was slacking...is a team really shit because they got pounded by an amazing team? I mean look at the game carefully, you would've seen Russia is a really good team (obviously) and was trying to play good, but they could not do anything against Canada's defense.
That game last night was a prime example of why they call Canada the best. They finally decided to pick their slack up, they were playing as a team and were actually playing with a heart. Amazing puck handling and teamwork.
I honestly expected the game to be way closer and even go into OT or SO...but was fun seeing them hand it to Russia

IMO, Luongo wasn't playing as good as he could of. The amount of goals he let in compared to the amount of shots on net was disappointing. Not to mention he wasn't even being pressured that much by Russia's offence (due to the fact Canada's defense wouldn't let them through).
btw, don't know why they didn't pull the goalie after the 1st
. Lol I know that whole thing about in the 80's they did that and it got worse...regardless I would've pulled him out after the 1st w/o thinking twice (Russia).
I would love to see Canada get their revenge against the U.S. on Sunday
