As for Team USA prior loss, they met the best defensive teams in Olympic history in Canada (best ever with only 3 goals allowed). Yeah, they lost, but with a little luck, they could have won.
They were close, its a one game elimination, not time to blow up the system, although I'm sure the media will report it as so, and knuckle heads will believe it.
