Home Ice is only an advantage if the team can draw energy from the crowd. They can only draw energy from the crowd if the crowd is into the game(how else is Montreal in the playoffs, they S-U-C-K). The Flyers "used" to be a team that would start out hitting everything, a fight, etc to get the "average fan" into the game. They have not been hitting and fighting/playing hard and fast for a long time.

Once the playoffs start the games are easy to get into as they "mean something". In the regular season, most games are just "another game", the players play them that way and the fans cheer for them that way.

Playoffs=different story.
