Gone in 300 Seconds

One of my more fun Blitz games.  It's against a slightly stronger opponent (by rating) and though we both made some mistakes I had a definite edge.  Unfortunately I wasted a little too much time in the middle of the game trying to decide on a move and it cost me a nice mate.  I was literally a split second away from winning.  (In fact, the Live Chess game window showed my move as being played, but I "officially" lost on time)

Below is the game complete with the final coup de grace move.  Enjoy.

As always, any observations on mistakes or missed opportunities is very welcome.
