MALMO, SWEDEN - Brent Sutter didn't hit the panic button Saturday night.

In fact, we would be willing to bet a hockey bag full of Swedish kronor that Canada's coach doesn't even know where to find it.

It was a calm and matter-of-fact Sutter who met with reporters following a stunning 5-4 shootout loss to the Czech Republic, a dose of adversity this team won't have much choice but to skate around.

"When you put the Canadian jersey on, you are expected to win every game, but the reality is, you are not going to," Sutter said. "It's how you deal with it and how you handle it, and it's going to make us a better team for what happened here.

"It's a good learning tool, a good lesson for us."
