Go Habs Go
They had a massive run of luck that season in terms of both injuries, shooting percentage and competition for place in the standings. Most importantly they went on a huge run on power play scoring which elevated a mediocre 5 on 5 team to the top. The 8th place team the year after was much better 5 on 5 but had worse goaltending, not as much luck on the power play and injury issues so collapsed. That doesn't speak to good coaching, it speaks to a guy that got lucky once.

They were basically the opposite of last year's team that had more than its fair share of bad shooting luck and missed Markov for the entire season.
