Rest Notes: A pretty mundane Monday from a rest perspective. Everyone has a single day off, no one’s on an extended stretch of play.

Rest Notes: There are more mismatches than evenly-pegged games on Tuesday. On top of the back-to-backs we see from Vancouver and Boston, Winnipeg and Chicago are both playing their fourth game in six nights, and Calgary is playing their third in four.

Rest Notes: On top of a quadrant of back-to-backs, we have Montreal and Vegas playing their third game in four nights, while Boston and Vancouver play their fourth in six in what’s a very heavy Thursday night lineup.

Rest Notes: Nothing special on a quiet Friday. A slight mismatch between the Preds and Stars, but with both being relatively rested, not anything that should seriously tilt the odds.

Rest Notes: It’s a full schedule! Good luck keeping up with this one. Philadelphia, Dallas, Minnesota, and Nashville are playing in their second consecutive nights. Montreal and Vegas are playing their third game in four nights. Vancouver and Boston are playing their fourth in six. The biggest mismatch sees the Blue Jackets get two extra rest days on the Kraken.
