In the first two rounds, the higher-seeded team has home-ice advantage (regardless of point record). For all others, it goes to the team with the better regular season record (regardless of seeding); in case of a tie, the league's standard tiebreaking procedure is applied. The team with home-ice advantage hosts games one, two, five, and seven, while the opponent hosts games three, four, and six (games five through seven are played if necessary).
