Sorry but JT is right, the effort was there (except from Penner).

In the second the Kings started playing the sharks game (high flying, run and game, a speed game), that doesn't suit us at all. What Brown means by taking periods off he means taking periods off from the system, which is different than trying hard, ie: effort. Effort was there, focus was not.
