Pat Burns's style. We were built to win 2-1, 2-0, 1-0 games. Dump the puck, 1 guy forechecking. Used to drive me mad really. We would try to protect leads for 55 minutes for crying out loud. That's why Burns "left"; we had a gruesome style to watch.
The Whalers had nothing to lose really, and they were young bucks. They opened it up and skated like there was no tomorrow. Since it was the playoffs, the Whalers were desperate. But we(Burns) didn't change our style one bit. Relied too much on Patty too.
