from Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province,
The collapse defied explanation, really.
“Tonight yeah, we did have two good periods. And just sh*t the bed pretty much (in the third),” Tanner Pearson said.
Bruce Boudreau said he was happy with how his team played in the first two periods.
“(The first) was the way we wanted to play, it was a very low scoring, low chance period … and then I thought we had a great second period and I think the game plan for the third period was fine,” he said. “But I mean, it did look like we started to, I don’t know what word I’m looking for, like just sort of collapse, and we’re afraid to win and, they came at us pretty good. And we just didn’t handle it very well.”
