So yes, having Osgood in net would have made a significant difference in both cases. Having Osgood in 1999 puts the Wings in threepeat territory.
Baloney. Both games Osgood played, in what was a 2-2 series, the Wings lost by three goals.

Citing overall playoff stats to argue someone's performance in one series is misleading at best. Ranford was very good in the first two games and abysmal in the next two. Roy put up a .938 in the Detroit series and a combined .973 in the two deciding games while Osgood didn't hit .900 in either game.
