I don't really see many instances in this series where Trotz is getting outcoached. Bottom line is that Phoenix is executing better than we are. If Horny gets 3 or 4 more shots actually on target, or Wilson gets a few more off on time, maybe they also take ridiculous knuckling bounces and game 4 goes to OT. In a series where we're down 3 games to 1, we've scored a whopping two goals less. No margin for error for the players in this series, and we've made just a few more mistakes, and had a few less lucky breaks, than they have.

I don't think there would be as much outrage if it wasn't the Coyotes that were beating us. There was a faulty perception that they were a vastly inferior team, and that we should have been able to roll right through them. Anybody that had watched them play through the season and the first round should have known better. I doubt there'd be this much angst were it Detroit, Chicago or even Los Angeles that was beating us right now.
