The last time we won a series which we started with home ice advantage was 1991, against the Vancouver Canucks, in the opening round, 4-2. We lost the following series, which we also had home ice, to the Edmonton Oilers 4-2. That series featured four overtimes, including a double OT game, with Edmonton taking three of the four OT games.

We then lost the following year in round one to Edmonton again 4-2, again with home ice advantage to start the series.

So yeah, since we don't have to worry about Edmonton this year we should be ok,

Sad to think it's been 22 years since we won a series with home ice advantage. Since then we've played 17 playoff series, the last 15 straight without home ice advantage. Yeah, we're due to start a series at home.
