Canada Came This Close To A Goal

Canada and Latvia—Latvia!—are tied 1-1 late in the third, and it's hard to say exactly why it's so close.

Here's how close they came to netting a second.

That's defenseman Kristaps Sotnieks with the save that should have earned Canada a penalty shot. Tough break, Canada.
