They looked faster and better than at pretty much any point last year.
Agreed. AV didn't turn the dial back to Torts' system last night. They certainly played hard, blocked shots, and forechecked like madmen, but they also managed to enter the zone with the puck, be effective on the powerplay, and transition the puck out of their own end. It looked like things started to click.
