... If they coasted, I didn't see it. Their execution was lacking, not their effort. They had a terrible second period because of their lack of execution and their lack of focus. They had an OK third period; they seemed to get some of their defensive awareness back, and they created some good chances at the other end. In OT, they just got beat, very much like the first game of the series. I don't consider the OT goal part of the breakdown at all. The breakdown was the second period.
