Their record was better on the road than at home, but they were still 9 games over 0.500 at home (they lost the same amount of games in regulation at home as on the road; 3 ties more at home).

By contrast, the Pens were 19 games over 0.500 at home, but only 7 games over 0.500 on the road.

Selective statistic reporting, really, because the Pens aren't world beaters outside of Consol.
