They were one series away from the Cup Finals..as an 8th seed.
Montreal rode a red hot goalie to a couple of huge upsets and a couple of seasons later were a lottery team .

Any team can get on a roll and win a series or two but you need actually talent to become a perinial cup contender and not just a one year wonder .
