How Many Home games do the Habs really have?

In the regular season every team has 41 Home games and 41 Away games.
Teams usually have a better Home record then an Away record and one of the main factors of that is the Fans. Fans give the team a great momentum boost.

If we just look at this through the Fan factor, how many home games a season do the Habs really have?

Example of places where Habs fans outnumber and outscream the local fans:
2 @ NY Islanders
2 @ Tampa Bay
2 @ Panthers
3 @ Senators (Unless the Sens are blowing us out, close games Habs fans outdo Sens)


And another 3 cities where we have big fan contingents, and if the team starts off well our fans get really loud and can be very well heard. Also Towards the end of these games, if we are winning by a fair margin, completely outnumbering the Hometown team:
2 @ Devils
3 @ Boston (A couple of years Ago I would of included Boston in my list above)
3 @ Toronto (Yes Habs fans can proudly claim to be the ONLY Fanbase in the NHL to have taken over the ACC)


So if we examine this, Fan support wise the Habs have AT least 50 games out of 82 a season secured. Of course this depends on the team performing at least adequately. They also have the potantial of another 8 away games vs the Devils, Bruins and Leafs which would make it 58 out of 82.


Come on guys we're still missing 24 games a season to be perfect.

So some games are home games--unless we're losing in which case they are away games?

I think the NHL should have a new rule -

If the visiting team draws more of their fans to the arena than the Home team, then they get the last line change
