I was thinking it was more of a stunned silence. Labonte got the hook after 3 in 3:32 all of which I thought were shaky goals. The first, she had ample opportunity to cover the loose puck, in fact she had her glove on it but JLam dug it out and deposited it. I think she felt the whistle should have gone. IIRC the next 2 were second chances on sloppy rebounds. I thought the tug was appropriate. Szabbados didn't fare much better initially as Chu deposited a PP goal from the goal line with the low post uncovered but I thought she did settle down and played ok for the rest of the period. I know coaches who will tell you they pull the starter in an attempt to motivate their team but I am not a fan of "reinstalling" the pulled keeper after an intermission barring injury. A little difficult on the psyche. Playing Szabados against the Finns was also an interesting move.
To me the big difference was the US played with speed and laserbeam passing while the Canucks seemed like they were skating in cement. How about Pucci jumping up on the rush and scoring on a sweet pass from MLam. Now that's attack
