How big of a factor is home ice advantage?

Recommended Posts

It sometimes seems that it's easier to score going "upwards".. which when you're home you get 2 periods going in that direction.

I never really noticed home ice advantage until playing in the NHLonline league. Against the computer you simply never feel it because it always an insane blow-out regardless of being home or away.

I play as the islanders. On the road it's like they're skating on mud. Their shot speed also feels a little tired. Then there are times when goalie Healy (rated a 40 something) feels like hes rated a big old Zero.

At home its a different story. Hogue feels fast. King can shoot. Kasparitis can kinda hit.
