What are the quarantine mandates for road games? If home teams can sleep in their own beds at night verses being trapped and isolated in a hotel room, then yes, home ice is an advantage.

Has it been decided the Canadian teams will have home games beyond the north divisional round.

A Leafs fan at work thinks they’ll be playing in Florida with all the Canadian retirees filling the stands.

That’s something i’ve been wondering about as well. Canada doesn’t seem to be allowing anyone in without a long quarantine so going back and forth would basically be impossible, and it seems unlikely they would make a US team quarantine for 10-14 days and then make them play the whole series in the great white north

It’s 9000 for Florida.

The NHL hasn’t made a decision on the semi-finals yet. They are hoping for exemptions to the quarantine for the NHL players. If they can’t do that, the Canadian home games will likely be played at a U.S NHL rink.
