(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 backs||t-3rd|
|Games as rested team||t-27th|
|Games as tired team||t-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.
