Taylor Hall's meltdown came in front of a national television audience on Saturday.

So did the questioning of his coach's decision to pull the goaltender in the later stage of a game when they were already three goals down.

It was a reaction the Edmonton Oilers sophomore was regretting the next morning, even though many thought it was refreshing to see someone upset with the circumstances.

"It was just a bit of frustration," said Hall. "We all want to win, we all care, and to have that kind of result and the effort that we put in (Saturday) night isn't what we wanted it.

"After that goal, I was just so frustrated at the whole sequence of events and I wasn't singling out Tom by any means. I respect everything that Tom does and it was kind of embarrassing on my part to say that. But we moved on, we talked about it and everything is fine."
