Imagine my fear when I read Mark Herrmann's tweet that John Tavares left the bench for Team Canada after a hit by Arturs Kulda in the second period of the game betwee Canada and Latvia. Team USA is beating the Czech 4-1 after two, but Canada and Ted Nolan's Latvia are tied at 1 each after the second. Just wondering if this is some sort of Nolan retribution on the...
