Rest Notes: Anaheim is playing their third game in four nights. A few multi-gamers on this list, including a steep one for New Jersey over Pittsburgh in what we’re calling the Underachievabowl. Or at least, I’m calling it that.

Rest Notes: No underlying workloads tonight – just a bunch of one and two-night rest mismatches. Only the double-back-to-back between Washington and Carolina is on even ground, but even that comes with Washington travelling in with Carolina staying in place.
