For all those that have been saying that Carolina is a dirty team that doesn't deserve to be in the finals, you don't know a crap about our team. Most, if not all of our players are class acts (but you can say that with all hockey players, that's what makes hockey players different from many basketball or football players ).

That Koivu injury was an accident, and I honestly think that we would've won with or without Koivu. Heck, Williams even called Koivu to apologize and make him feel better.
Also, Buffalo could've prepared for injuries in the D-core during the trade deadline by stockpiling on depth defencemen, but the GM didn't want to add payroll, which, to me, was their downfall (too young of a lineup is another downfall, they needed more veteran experience, as you can't have a bunch of kids running around in the playoffs).
Also, goaltending has been great on Edmonton's side, as Markkanen has been great in Roloson's absence. If Carolina wins the Cup, it won't be because of luck, but because of their resilience, depth, balance, and a consistent, underated defence.
