David's outrage at Israel's response to Goliath suggests there is some correlation between anger and zeal for God, as would Jesus' use of a whip clearing the temple of vendors in John 2:13-17.

However, I think it is noteworthy that both references cast the anger that their zeal engendered in a positive light.

David's actions appear to meet God's hearty approval in his encounter with Goliath, raising a question as to whether anger is the "evil twin" or just the "sometimes evil twin" of Godly zeal.
