Morning Line- Rick Bowness

“Hockey is not meant to be played four [games] in six [nights], let alone what we’re going to do. No, I’ve never seen anything like this. I hope I never see it again. This is going to be incredibly taxing on our players. There’s no question.

“You run the risk of guys who have to play 20-22 minutes a night in order to give us a good chance to win, it’s going to affect them the most. Those are the guys you worry about because they’re going to be playing tired a lot of nights. We can’t do anything about it. This is what the league has given us.

“They’ve done the best job they can. It’s tough on the league with finding building availability and coordinating all of this. The league has done the best job they can to help us through this. When you lose nine days and you lose eight games in an already condensed schedule, that’s tough. We’ll deal with it the best we can. That’s all we can do.”

-Rick Bowness, head coach of the Dallas Stars.  Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News has more.  Bowness is concerned about the Dallas

schedule that packs 43 games into 76 days, including 10 sets of back-to-backs.
