Rest Notes: A pretty standard-fare list here. Two one-game differences, no back-to-back, and no underlying workloads.

Rest Notes: We have two back-to-backs here which are obvious, but underneath the hood, we also have Montreal, Washington, St. Louis, and Vancouver playing their third game in four nights. Anaheim, Nashville, Chicago, and the Islanders have two-day advantages.

Rest Notes: There are no quirks here, just two evenly matched games and one big swing at the top, with Winnipeg having three days off and the Sharks having… two weeks?! Yes, they’re the very last team to return from the All-Star & bye week schedule. I’d actually give Winnipeg the advantage here – three days is plenty of rest, and two full weeks is well past rust territory. That’s before looking at the roster quality between the two as well…

Rest Notes: We have three back-to-backs, and on top of that, we have Seattle and New Jersey playing their third game in four nights. As well, Montreal, St. Louis, and Vancouver are playing their fourth game in six nights. Calgary has the biggest advantage, with two rest days to San Jose’s none, especially egregious with the Sharks flying in from Winnipeg.

Rest Notes: A single game difference here on a day that is as close as you can get to a day off without being one. Odd schedule time, two smaller market teams, this could’ve been a Thursday game and given us all a night off, but alas.
