Rest Notes: A pattern you’ll see this week is a lot of quiet action nights, and this is yet another one. Boston travels into Tampa on the second half of a back-to-back, playing the Panthers the night before.

Rest Notes: Just one game on the schedule tonight? It’s true. New Jersey has a slight advantage on the rest front here, though both are in a relatively fine spot. Just for kicks, we should give the winner of this one the second wildcard in the Eastern Conference.

Rest Notes: It’s your typical hectic Saturday, but there isn’t a lot of underlying load. Beyond Buffalo’s back-to-back, Ottawa plays their third in four nights and Vegas plays their fourth in six. No one has more than a day on their opponent, and most are even.

Rest Notes: Another quiet day, with just one game. Vancouver has a two-day advantage on rest, on top of Anaheim travelling on a road back-to-back, on top of an already big gap between the two teams. Can you guess who’s favoured here?
