    Any stats on whether Canadian teams or USA teams are penalized more when playing each other and whether there is a difference depending on home vs. away?

    By “playing each other” do you mean Canada team - Canada team and US team - US team?

    Not exactly what you are looking for, but here is a study on ethnicity bias (refs vs players):

    If you have access to academic publications look for "Testing for Ethnicity Discrimination among NHL Referees: A Duration Model Approach"

    A few mainstream media have picked on it as well: French Canadian NHL referees give more penalties to English players, new study says

    There are also many other studies out there on ref bias, simply google around. Not sure if any will answer precisely what you are looking for but there is definitely bias among refs in various situations.

    I was curious whether there was a statistically significant bias when a Canadian team is playing an American team. The French Canadian study above is also interesting.

    For strictly USA vs Canada you may not have a large enough sample to obtain statistically significant results with a high degree of confidence.
