IF your team is good enough, you will win.
I never said it was impossible, just that much more difficult. In 1997, the Wings had to go through St. Louis, Anaheim, and Colorado to get to the SCF. In 2002, it was Vancouver, St. Louis, and Colorado. That extra hour behind that comes with playing on Pacific time seems to have always been the straw that broke the camel's back. I am not saying it was the only reason. In many of those series, they were clearly outplayed by less talented teams, and my gut tells me that all of the travel had something to do with that.
