Being "tough" doesn't win hockey games. Scoring goals wins hockey games. The Bruins won a Cup because they scored key goals and had a goalie on fire.
Do not ever overlook you need good old LUCK to win a cup too......Those Bruins could have just as easily lost in the 7th game against Tampa that year...Tampa hit the post a few times etc ..Same with the Blackhawks this year for that matter.Its usually a crap shoot in the end many times.

The Flyers are not even remotely close to being the " bullies" type club as years ago. If we were we could have WON more cups....If todays team was as dominate Physically as the 70s teams and we had a Bernie Parent type goalie we would be right in the hunt , I don.t care what the ' new" NHL is. Intimidation is one hell of a weapon, especially when mixed with talent correctly and used to ones advantage.
