Speaking after Colorado drew with Seattle Sounders 2-2, Smith said, "It was a very quick game.
"Seattle pressed the ball as well. There was a heck of a lot of work put into that first hour of the game, and we should have really put it to bed.
"Then we can maybe feel a little bit more confident about our possession and just seeing the game out.
"But when you put so much into the opening period, there's always a tendency to get done with a sucker punch. We have tonight."
