That could be debated. Yes Carolina was the better team during the regular season but the playoffs are another thing entirely. If only one of these 3 factors had not gone the way it did Montreal would have made it to the 2nd round:

#1 Factor: One sided penalties...the worst one sided series i've ever seen in terms of bad & missed calls
#2 Factor: Their goaltender..
#3 Factor: Koivu's Injury. Some of the Carolina players would probably put this higher up than #3 I'm assuming from some of the comments we have heard

#2 & #3 happened and they were the better team for taking advantage of these factors but had #1 never happened we wouldnt be talking about a Buffalo/Canes series
