The Chicago Blackhawks need to take advantage of having the last change.
The Chicago Blackhawks are now tied in their series with the Edmonton Oilers. They played well in their first game and won the game but then in game two, they struggled mightily. Connor McDavid imposed his will and showed the world why everyone considers him the best player in the National Hockey League. He combined his incredible speed with his incredible skill to score a hat trick and that led to a big Edmonton victory.
Well, in the first two games of the series, Edmonton was considered the home team. They are the host city but that is not why they were the “home team”. They were the five seed and the Hawks are a 12 seed so they have the first two games as the “home team”. There are no fans but there are still hockey advantages to playing at home.
