FAST FACTS

The top five teams all won their first-round Stanley Cup series, but where was that fearsome home-ice advantage? Collectively, they were 8--6 in their buildings.... The Devils' 225 regular-season home wins over the past decade are second only to the Red Wings' 250, yet New Jersey received only 1%.... The Blackhawks' home record during that period is a pedestrian 181-132-22, tied for 23rd.
