Charlie Coyle scored his second goal of the game at the 5:15 mark of the first overtime, as the Blue Jackets dropped Game 1 in a 3-2 OT loss to the Boston Bruins.

We broke down the goal, both from the Bruins standpoint as well as from the side of Zach Werenski and the Blue Jackets, to illustrate exactly what went wrong.

In the video, the concept of the "royal road" was discussed. If you'd like more information on the royal road, here is a great article where you can learn more.

It's worth noting that Werenski played a game-high 29:06. The mishap was not a great look from the young defenseman, who, along with the rest of the defense corps, will need to raise their level of play in Game 2, Saturday night at TD Garden.
