ND lost one game of the last 10. If they couldn't handle adversity, they wouldn't have won the CCHA title in which they were not always the first team to score in those games. Hockey is different than some of the other sports where the backgrounds of these kids are relatively similar. The kids at ND are not all that different than the kids at SCSU, or many of the other teams. I think arguments could be made about abilities, etc. but losing these one-and-done games should not be overused sources of data to define who has heart or who is able to handle adversity.
