Bruins look like a team in preseason

Normally, I don't read too much into preseason games as an indicator of how the season is going to go, but one thing jumped out at me in the handful of games I watched this preseason: The Bruins are going to be a team that is willing to stick up for each other. Whether it was Drew Fata challenging Aaron Voros after a high hit on Dennis Wideman, Chuck Kobasew seeking justice after he (incorrectly) perceived that a Colubus Blue Jacket took a run at Tuukka Rask, Milan Lucic forcing Chris Neil to make a blood donation or Steve Begin flying into the middle of scrums throughout the preseason, this team has shown that they are not afraid to drop the gloves and serve up some on-ice justice. This team might not be the "Big Bad Bruins", but they are far from the milquetoast Mike Sullivan B's. You can just call them the Mitch Weaver B's, because they don't take crap from anyone.
