Can someone help me out- Question on seeding w/ new format

Is there any chance we can have home ice advantage in the Eastern Conf. Finals? I know Boston would trump us but what about Montreal b/c they are technically a 3 seed?

How bout if we were to reach the Stanley Cup finals? Could we host home ice against any of the teams out West ?

I would think that in this case it goes based on points... so MTL would get home ice.

Yeah, both Boston and Montreal have home ice on us because of points.

It's the better record. Seeds are done after the second round. The Rangers are not going to have home ice next round.

Quote:
As has been the case since 1979-80, 16 teams will qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This season, however, the format is a set bracket that is largely division-based with wild cards.

The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season record and regardless of division. It is possible for one division in each conference to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends just three.

In the First Round, the division winner with the best record in each conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the lesser record; the wild card team with the better record will play the other division winner.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will meet in the First Round within the bracket headed by their respective division winners. First-round winners within each bracket play one another in the Second Round to determine the four participants in the Conference Finals.

Home-ice advantage through the first two rounds goes to the team that placed higher in the regular-season standings. In the Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Final, home-ice advantage goes to the team that had the better regular-season record -- regardless of the teams' final standing in their respective divisions.

Ironic that had we beat Montreal in that last game of the regular season which was a throw away game at the time, we would have had home ice against them.

From a fan perspective, home ice is nice (more home games)> I don't know that it makes any difference with this team though.

the ONLY reason why it does is becayse of Bell Center... that's literally the only stopping point with this "problem".

Wow I did not know that! You never know, huh? Home ice would have been nice this series, as someone said the Bell Centre is as loud as it gets during the playoffs.

But it will be a moot point if Boston wins tonight.

Nope. Rangers will be the lesser seed the rest of the way... Everyone out west except Dallas finished with more points than the Rangers.
