Two- Ottawa has a worse record at home than away.
Home ice means little to nothing in this series and that has been evident over the first four games.
There hasn't been an elimination game yet. Teams with home ice in NHL Game 7's win ~75% of the time.
Going down 3-2 puts the Rangers at about a 40% chance of winning game 6 and a 20% chance of winning the series. I don't like those odds. Tonight is a must win.
