Then, they pulled a complete 180 and folded like the French army, taking seven more penalties and giving up 2 goals in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods.
Wow... The coaching for BC is just awful right now. The Eagles have no set plays on offense, they look completely disorganized, they take a ludicrous amount of penalties (17 in 2 games), and Coach King watched her team melt down over two periods and never utilized her timeout.
The game-tying goal came with around 5 minutes to go on a Clarkson 5-on-3. Going into that 5-on-3 situation, BC's top PK unit was gassed from killing off two previous third period penalties. It would have been wise to call timeout, rest them, and send them back out... but nope. Clarkson scores, 4-4, end of story.
After the 4-4 tie, BC had a power play opportunity... and yeah, Stack and Thunstrom couldn't start it because they were gassed from penalty killing. No timeout there either.
No timeout after giving up two goals in one minute in the second period, letting their lead slip...
What the hell?
