One of the things that got me thinking last night was this: The terrible NBC talking heads were speaking before the game about the B's ability to play big and aggressive if you want; or play the skill game if you want that instead. That can be intimidating to a lot of teams in the league because with the Bruins they can usually do it better than the opposition.
Turns out after watching the game that the Bruins didnt know which team they were last night. They can't out-skill the class of puck possession teams, and thier "big nastiness" came out like a wimper compared to the Anahiem teams we have faced over the years.
With our generations of players being developed the same puck possession way, it's amazing to watch a "system" beat a team of bigger, better, meaner.
