Canada’s 4-2 win over Team USA at the World Cup Tuesday night means the American team has been eliminated from the tournament, much earlier than expected.
Matt Duchene scored twice and Corey Perry and Patrice Bergeron each had a goal for Canada, while Carey Price had 34 saves. Unfortunately, Ryan McDonagh and T.J Oshie scored for the U.S., which ended Price’s shutout streak at 228:41.
More importantly than all of that, though, is the reaction to the game from the twitterverse- particularly one former Toronto Maple Leaf who was left off Team USA…
