The 2014-15 NHL schedule was released yesterday, and the news wasn’t great for the Maple Leafs (click to view the Leafs schedule).

(In layman’s terms, the Leafs get to play a tired team while rested only 5 times, but played a rested team while tired 14 times).

 Rank out of 30
Total back to backst-3rd

According to more of Gus’s data, out of a sample of 17220 games, a tired team’s winning percentage is .495 while a rested team’s is .596.

At least they’re in the East. Using a 4th line might be important in those tired back to backs.
