  1. Does anyone have any insight on how effective Larkin was in shutting down McDavid or that line?

    1. Canada looked flat. 3 games in 4 days and the wrong medal on the line. So I think part of it was Larkin shadowing McDavid, but mostly Canada just not showing up. 4-1 was misleading. It was a 2-1 game with 2 more empty net goals. Lots of PPs disrupted the flow, but like I said, Canada looked disinterested. US was pretty flat too.
