Travel Plans

from Dirk Hoag of On The Forecheck,

A few interesting tidbits from this year's data:

  • While the Sharks may be jet-setting across North America this season, at least they'll have the fewest sets of games on back-to-back nights (10), along with other major traveling teams Winnipeg & Colorado. In an interesting balancing act, most of the teams with a high amount of travel mileage benefit from having fewer back-to-backs.
  • The Detroit Red Wings should be thrilled with their move to the Eastern Conference, as they can look forward to the easiest schedule they've ever had in the six years I've been compiling this.
  • The cushiest schedule by far goes to the New York Rangers, who not only travel the least but also have very few (13) back-to-back sets of games.

SJ at 57,000 miles and Phoenix at 52,000 are much more travel than any other team. Location isn’t the only factor as LA, Anaheim and Vancouver are much less.
