Rest Notes: The Stars and Kings are each playing their third game in four nights. Nashville, Tampa Bay, Detroit, and Carolina are playing their fourth in six nights. There are two multi-day rest advantages here – Chicago will still remain underdogs against Colorado, no doubt, but the gap might give Anaheim a road edge over San Jose.
