UFA, RUSSIA - Steve Spott can be a tricky guy.

But he can't snap his fingers and rewind the clock.

After Canada lost 5-1 against the United States in a semifinal at the 2013 world junior championship on Thursday, Spott wondered aloud what he and his coaching staff could have done differently to prepare the players.

"Maybe we should have gone in before the game and kicked up more of a storm," Spott, Canada's head coach, said. "We have not done that yet because we have not had to."
