In response to BsLegion's comment:
loss 3-2 for Canada
Ugly game by Canada against the Finns. 2 5 on 3 PP goals for the Finns and a weak 3rd goal on Subban.
As for the 2 other Bruins really didn't see anything special from Camara, Dougie looked ok on the 1st unit of PP other than that they, the whole team looked asleep . Let's call it jet lag.
Canada very un-disciplined (Dougie 2 calls). Some so so calls but that's how they will call them in Europe.
Also they better get used to the big ice service otherwise they'll have big problems in the tournament . Especially penalty killing , so so much space and Canada's PK was lost, awful.
Wish I could check out the U.S. but some of us have to work. :)
Nice update BsLegion. Canada's coach has no problems how Subban played in that game, unlike some of the meathead Canadian press.
I didn't have privy to seeing that game, but the 3rd goal allowed by Subban was actually a deflection, not a weak goal.
As per TSN.ca:
The game-winning goal was the source of much of the criticism directed at the Belleville Bulls goalie, but Tugnutt absolved Subban of any blame for that one as well.
"We have great video that I went through and, I don't think anyone knows, but the last goal was actually tipped," he said. "I was completely comfortable with Malcolm's game. I thought he made some key saves at key times to give us a chance and he'll just get better."
"I saw it going up and my glove started going up," Subban said when asked about the third Finnish goal, "and then it started flipping down and I tried to get to it, but it was too late. It's whatever. I still got to do what I can. Obviously [the deflection] makes it a little more challenging."
In Summary ... Subban allowed 2 goals when the Finns had a 5 on 3 PP ... the other goal was a deflection.
Go Subban Go!
What else would a coach say to the media ? Is he going to rip Subban instead ? Not a chance . They still have a tournament to play.
