Scored 2 goals off the rush, one of them a 1 on 3.
Basically spent the majority of 3 periods chipping the puck to the NZ and changing. That's not being in control.
On the contrary a lot of what takes place in an NHL game on the ice is predicated on what the scoreboard reads above it. Which is how this game unfolded.

Were it not for quick Phoenix scoring and Dubnyk being underwhelming you could reasonably expect a more determined effort from the Coyotes for the rest of the game. They didn''t really have to do too much to beat us. But at no point did I think we were in control of this game or outcome.

In a different way, we're saying somewhat the same thing.

Was Smith better than Dubnyk? Absolutely.
