This has nothing to do with western teams travelling more, the jet lag/time zone factor in this situation is just added icing on cake.

When it could be avoided there's absolutely no reason to be throwing teams into back to back games, especially on road, and especially against teams that had night before off to rest at home. It's just creating crappy situations for players and fans because it's unfair for one team and is going to make for a dull hockey game, and I'm not being a homer here, I'd say this for any team and wouldn't even enjoy watching Montreal pummel an opponent put into the situation.

The only 2 day back to back games should be home & home series so both teams are equally dealing with the same scheduling issues.
