What is up with these Bruin coaches? Plenty of talent, even D1, yet they can't win anything when it counts. It's really frustrating as a fan to go to these games with high expectations only to see the team choke in the clutch. It seems the Bruins can crush these teams in meaningless games during the season, only to fold to them in the playoffs.
