I'm frankly surprised at how few goals Canada has conceded during the last 15 minutes of a match, while the last 15 of the first half has been a defensive minefield. Canada's scoring has been more evenly distributed, though weighted towards the first half.
By half, it breaks down thusly:
- 1st half: 23 scored, 20 conceded
- 2nd half: 18 scored, 16 conceded
