My rage kept snowballing throughout the duration of that penalty, though.
There was Kovy getting tackled at the blueline leading up to goal #3 and the linesman interfering with Volch leading to goal #4 that pushed me over the edge.

All that being said... the team did not play good enough to win and the loss was inevitable. Just a tough way to go out.

That compressed 2-1-2 they set up in the defensive zone with all those short passes was incredible. I don't know if the team was too tired or too stubborn to adjust... but it was unbeatable.
