Having puck-possession advantage and scoring opportunities advantage is one thing. Burying on your chances and cashing in is another things. Some call it "luck factor". And there is some. But ultimately, you create your own luck when you're a champion. And the Habs didn't do that yesterday.
But puck-possession advantage and scoring opportunities (shots basically) correlated way more with success than "burying abilities" (shotting percentage). It's the former that perenial great teams have, not the latter.
