    Last night was EMBARRASSING,DISGRACEFUL and HUMILIATING. These two teams were pretty much equal to each other on Halloween night. In the next five months they went in the opposite direction.
    There are simply no excuses for quitting in a game of this magnitude. After it became 3-0 they waved the white flag. I watched Minnesota-Dulth, in a similar situation, play with resolve, score two goals and come within inches of tying the game.
    A combination Of 9 NHL draft choices and 4 World Junior players and the last two games B U. gave up 11 Goals in a row! The last three games outscored 15-4! The team regressed the second half of the year. It is always will over skill. A mentally soft team with a very fragile psyche.
    When the going got tough B.U. stopped going and gave up!
