There is no such thing as luck, but rather, the laws of probability. Goals often described as flukes or as lucky are instead easily explained away as a player being in the right place at the right time.
The famous Gretzky quote is "You miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take. Even though there is only a 1-5% probability of scoring". (The Hockey News - January 16, 1983)
In other words, you make your own luck.
