1) Everyone chipping in - this isn't a one line team every night. Every game we gets performances from different players, whether last night being Prust or Budaj against Boston.

2) Organizations not a circus - last year Gauthier turned the most storied franchise in the NHL into amateur hour, with his in-game trades and his pre-game firings. No more.

3) The kids - These guys are still young enough that they play for the love of the game, and not a paycheck. This rubs off on all the guys. Plus they're pretty damn good at hockey too.

4) Buying into the system - this year you can tell the boys are truly lay it on the line for each other. Brandon Prust is a huge part of this, but it flows through the room.

5)Improvements to Key players - player improvements, from guys like Emelin, Eller, Diaz, and Subban have really put this team where it's needed to be. Last year, they were all rookies or sophomores. This year, they've made adjustments to their games and it's paid off for everyone.
