That being said, it's almost always luck and will especially be so in the era of the cap as parity has completely taken over the league. Teams just don't dominate like they did even back in the early nineties. You can probably blame the trap and clutch and grab hockey on that as well.
You can find something lucky about almost every team thats won the cup in the last 30 years. Lack of injuries, opponents missing open nets, opponents suffering important injuries... the list is lengthy.
