Does Home Ice Matter

from NHL.com,
Having the home-ice edge is an advantage in the first two rounds of the playoffs but not so in the conference finals. In the 11 playoff seasons since the NHL shifted to the current playoff format, higher-seeded teams (based on regular-season record) have only managed to split 22 series. That's a big contrast from the 35-13 mark (.729 winning percentage) they've put up in the conference semifinals and the 62-34 (.646) they've posted in first-round series.
