They got burned sooo many times on the backchecking it was ridiculous. Going on the puck carrier instead of the 3rd forward, simply giving 3vs2, giving so much space to the pointers in the Dzone. They were doing a 1-2-2 forecheck poorly executed that resulted in more time and space for the Crunch to operate breakouts and control the neutral zone. That is either lack of coaching or lack of discipline to follow the game plan. Generally, it's the latter.
I'll give the Crunch credit on the relentless forechecking and winning so many 1vs1 battles. The dogs D were just worn out in the 3rd period and bad decisions ensued.
