Only if it gets to 5 or 7 games. Besides, let say two equal teams play each other. I am not so sure how much of a advantage home ice really is.

I mean the other teams starts with 2 games away, thats tough. But if they win the first game away the other team is in tremendous trouble. All because of one game.

Lets say we play NJD and looses the first game. There would be tremendous pressure on us in the 2nd game and they would have nothing to loose at all. They are either gooing home with homeice advantage or beeing up 2 games. Would be interesting to see some statics of how a team does that looses that first game home.

Though of course I want to win the division. But I am not sold on the home ice advantage is such a big advantage.
