Playing On Home Ice

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

4. Boston Bruins
Well, I guess you can ask the Vancouver Canucks to vouch for whether playing in Boston is any fun. The Canucks were destroyed in three games in Beantown during the 2011 Cup finals, which reinforced what a tough place it is to play in especially come playoff time. The Bruins are the NHL’s toughest, most rugged team and that meshes well with a New England crowd that likes its hockey that way. All of which makes for an electric, and intimidating, atmosphere.

5. Nashville Predators
OK, this is the wild card on the list, we know that. But this is among the loudest rinks in the league come playoff time. I mean, the fans here throw catfish on the ice! A surprising choice perhaps to have made this list, but the Preds love playing in the friendly confines of Bridgestone Arena and the place is going to rock this postseason.
