Every NHL hockey fan knows the arenas where their team finds it difficult to win. Some arenas are just tougher to win in than others. The fans are crazy, the boards take funny bounces, the ice is choppy, or the home team is simply better.
So I tried to accurately compile a list of the top 10 venues in the NHL. I tried to look at this over different years so I wasn't dependent on how good the team was in a certain year and take that as a fact. Capacity and attendance were certainly taken into account.
Home ice is very important in the NHL and defending home ice could propel a team through the playoffs and to the Stanley Cup.
