someone pointed out Detroit - and StL is the same - they have been monsters at home but mediocre on the road. while we can't get advantage of StL we can on Det, and it would seem to be beneficial at least in a series with either.

also, in the west, I think the travel comes into play. while I might not care about home ice travel against Chic, I sure do against the CAN or West Coast teams.
