I think both Canada and the Lightning met similar fates on Wednesday. Both had been pointing to one game for redemtion, both played fantastic and won that game and neither could sustain that intensity in the following game and got smoked. It took Canada until the 3rd to melt down and run out of gas, whereas the Lightning just didn't show up.
A lesson for 2 young teams that you have to play with the same intensity each game - especially against teams that are close in talent to yours. (Russia a little less talent, Pittsburg a little more talent)
