#1 Reason: Scoring Depth
. Suddenly, there's a whole new level of production from Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Bourque and Prust, plus improvements from Eller. Once you have scoring depth on three and a half lines, you can afford to have one or two guys injured and still be effective.
#2 Reason: Emelin, Diaz and Markov.
You can't score if your D isn't transitioning and passing it quickly. Our 5-on-5 has been amazing, and that begins with a corps of D that's (usually) smart and disciplined, snapping the puck out of our zone and on the PP much better than last year. Biggest difference from last year has been E, D and M. When they've lapsed, so has our team.
#3 Reason: Price & Budaj.
As we've seen, if the goalie is shaky, we lose, no matter how many goals we score. Price has been elite 90% of the time, Budaj has been great 80% of the time. Our record reflects their performances.
#4 Reason: System.
Bergevin's vision, Therrien's execution = an aggressive, positive atmosphere.
