For the Pittsburgh Penguins, familiar ground (or ice) must have been a welcome change of pace on Wednesday. After dropping the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals to the Red Wings in Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, the Penguins got on the scoreboard with a 3-2 victory in front of the hometown crowd.

The Penguins are an unbelievable 9-0 at the Igloo in the playoffs this year and have won 17 straight at home. They are 11-0 when scoring first in the quest for the Cup. In addition to notching a win, the Penguins also got themselves back in the series -- they now trail the best-of-seven playoff series 2-1. Climbing out of a 2-0 hole can be really tough, but the Penguins have taken a step in the right direction.

The Penguins also broke a scoring drought that kept them off the scoreboard the first two games of the series and nearly the entire first period of Wednesday's Game 3. However, 20-year-old captain Sidney Crosby scored two times nearly five minutes apart.

Sometimes, the home field advantage is invaluable -- both on and off the field, court or ice. For me, playing on my own turf these days means following the rules and system I have set out for my deep-in-the-money (DITM) picks.

Having the home field advantage isn't always about the crowd or the energy (although that's a part of it). It's also about familiarity and confidence too. Both those factors are key to buying the option at the right price, withstanding some pain if necessary and increasing your positions when the price goes down. You need to know the system is a winner and build the confidence to stick to your guns when a pick hits a rough patch.
