Not So Sweet: The Penguins return home Thursday night looking to take a 3-2 series lead over the Islanders, but being home hasn’t helped in the playoffs. Over the last four seasons, Pittsburgh is just 6-10 in home playoff games. The only team that’s played at least five home playoff games over that stretch with a worse record is Phoenix (5-10). Ottawa is 3-5 in home playoff games since then (same win percentage as Pittsburgh).
