Hopefully Sutter can bring this out of them on a regular basis. That is how a team can form an identity, and if they keep that play up, they'll be competing against any team in the league. If you can't match a team with skill, you have to outmatch them physically. That's how Boston successfully defeated the Canucks.
Exactly what I was thinking when I was watching it, they looked almost exactly like the Bruins. The feistiness and emotion helped them maintain their tenacity throughout the game, something largely absent this year that was costing us points. If we play every team like we hate their guts, look out.
