"We have a 3-2 lead with six minutes to go and lose," MacTavish said. "We lose by the same stupid mistakes we have been making time and time again. We are playing with a junior-league-player mentality."
That assessment seems about fair to me, but at what time do you stop blaming the players and start looking at the coach? I mean, really, when it's a question of mentality (and, to be fair, I think it's also a question of talent, but MacT was the one who brought it up), is that not a top-down thing? Whose job is it to snap players out of a losing mentality? Just a thought.
