Team Canada Didn’t Mix Well

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
They were standing about five feet apart in the mixed zone, an ashen Joe Sakic and the Russian kid, Alexander Ovechkin, fairly bouncing off the walls. The captain of a Canadian team that seemed built for gold with oodles of talent, experience and grit, and the exuberant star of a team that never seemed to get it right at these tournaments. One of them was going home. The other was high-fiving Russian writers and getting ready for a semifinal date with the plucky Finns.
continued Bob McKenzie of TSN describes the Canadian loss as a disaster,
What's that Hockey Canada saying? "Relax, it's just a game." I don't think so. Not this time. This result is an epic disaster. It is a colossal failure
