do the Coyotes retain "home ice advantage" in the 2nd round as the 3rd seed in the West in the regular season (by winning the Pacific division) OR does that change to "most regular season points" ( Predators 104 vs Coyotes 97).

checked numerous site includin ESPN and the NHL website and could NOT find the information

Pretty sure the Yotes keep home ice. Only in the nba does the better record team get home court.

I think it's because it's just assumed that the higher seeded team gets home ice no matter how many points they had during the season. The nba was the same way and changed it recently.

Yotes will retain 3rd seed.  I have no link but you can take that to the bank.

i dont have a reference for it but its been like that the last number of years....each team always holds on to their original seed and then the teams get re-seeded after every round

Vic I think LRR is just asking in terms of home ice. Matchup wise, it's 100% seeding.

so I guess IF the Panthers (#3 East seed as Southeast division winner) were to close out the Devils AND both the Bruins and Rangers were to win their game 7's, then the East matchups would be #1 Rangers vs #5 Flyers and #2 Bruins vs #3 Panthers even though the Flyers have more regular season points than BOTH the B's and Cats

IF the Devils come back then I guess it's Rangers vs Devils and Bruins vs Flyers 2nd round with Bruins home ice
