tion for the 1981-82 season.
"WE'RE NOT used to playing
for third place," stated Broncos head
coach Bill Wilkinson, whose team
had a seven-game winning streak
going into the second weekend of
January followed by a current seven-
game winless streak.
"We do not handle the pressure
situations that well," Wilkinson
added. When I said earlier that I was
going into every series expecting to
gain a lot of gray hairs from our in-
experience, I didn't realize how true
that would be."
The Broncos, coming off two ties
at home against conference leader
Lake Superior, are fueled by sopho-
more center Paul Polillo, the leading
scorer in the CCHA. Polillo has 48
points, including one goal and four
assists in two games against Michi-
gan last November.
Defensively, the stalwart in the
