Because they lost their starting goaltender and best skater for one month. The same month.

During the injuries to Giguere and Pronger: 2-7-2; -9 goal differential
During the rest of the regular season: 46-13-12; +59 goal differential

That's why they beat the team with the highest goal differential (Ottawa +66; which was lower than Anaheim's pace with Pronger/Giguere) in five games, proving that writing them off historically because of goal differential is a little silly.
