After winning two series as an underdog last season, home ice might not seem that important. But against our first round opponent, the Pittsburgh Penguins, it most certainly does.
Compared the all-time home and road records against the Penguins, and you'll see why.
Home (in Philadelphia) : 89W-24L-8T (78.8 win %)
Away (in Pittsburgh) : 43W-46L-22T (43.3 win %)
That's a HUGE 35.5% difference.
So please, Flyers, get a point against the Blueshirts tonight. It's practically Game 1 of the first round.
