Well then on that note nobody is actually lucky..
You can put yourself in a position to be lucky all the time, it doesn't mean you'll actually be lucky. That's my point.

For some reason there seems to be this belief that if you work hard and are the better team then it has nothing to do with luck.
Bruins got lucky bounces, you can attribute to whatever you want really, they still got lucky bounces while Pittsburgh were tripping over their sticks and bumping into their own players.
