Imagine if the internet was widely used in 1994--think about how it felt after games 4 and 5 against the Devils and then after game 6 in the Finals. Nothing was guaranteed then. A team could break the record for most wins in a season and still end up getting swept in the first round.
Yeah but the Rangers were the better team then and the Rangers weren't now. So added adversity from the refs is going to hurt your team badly in this situation. 3 games went into OT. Adversity in that situation against a better team can be fatal and it was.
