As a coach of both hockey and baseball I reign my teams in when the game is clearly decided. I still want them to play but I don't have them take bases on passed balls or steal bases. I won't tell them not to shoot on a breakaway but we will concentrate more on passing and making plays and ease up on the fore check.

When I was kid my AA pee wee team had a team in our league made up of AAA kids who didn't like the AAA coach and decided not to play for him and play down. Their closest game all season was 24-0. We lost to them once 35-0 and the shots were 108-2. 35 years later and it still pisses me off.
