Surveying the schedule

With the race to the playoffs so congested (particularly in the wild, wild, Western Conference), one area of focus is the remaining schedule for the various contenders.  Which teams have the toughest schedule, the most games left, etc.?

Two fine articles dig into some of the details for you.  First, over at mc79hockey, we get a schedule breakdown; which teams have the most home vs. road games, matches with elite teams, and back-to-back contests as well.  The picture looks especially grim for Minnesota there.

Second, JavaGeek over at Hockey Numbers takes a look at just how much of an effect back-to-back games have on a team’s chances for winning.  It helps put into perspective something that teams complain about all the time.
