Canada smothered Team USA's forwards.
A lot was made of Team USA being the tournament's top offensive team heading into a matchup against Canada. However, there were things that were not really talked about, including the 12 goals scored in group play against Slovenia and Slovakia.
Team USA's other group play goals came against Russia and another one was credited to the Americans after T.J. Oshie's shootout mastery.
The Americans also had a nice showing against the Czechs, but they weren't a great defensive team during the Sochi games.
Don't get me wrong, a team that includes Joe Pavelski, Phil Kessel, Patrick Kane, James van Riemsdyk and assorted others is impressive, but they all failed to show up against one of the tournament's better defensive teams.
