“There’s a different mentality here than the past few years,” captain Adrian Aucoin said. “I like to tell people that when I came in the league, Blackhawk hockey was kind of the model for most teams in the league — that hard-nosed, gritty hockey. “I think that’s the kind approach we took last year, but being the new game and the new rules, there’s a lot more skill involved, and going out and bullying other teams around really didn’t pay off for us too much. “I’m not going to say that they didn’t have winning in the blood here, obviously, because they’ve had some of the best teams in hockey in the past years, but it’s a different approach to the game now because of the new rules. We’ll take the approach that we have to be more offensive now and worry about skill a little more than being the brutes out there.”more
