This team is MUCH younger with a clearly defined identity and direction -- a grinding, in-your-face group of workaholics that relies on teamwork and balanced scoring to win games.
Just because their point totals are similar doesn't mean they're playing exactly the same kind of hockey. Do you really not see that??
Loaded with veterans? The team rode Jagr and Lundqvist but they played hard, night in and night out.
I'm not talking about point totals. And I'm not comparing the two teams. I'm comparing the style of play.
