This isn't NHL 12 and goalies don't automatically renew to full endurance after one day, especially after playing 60+ games already in an NHL season.
There have been many goalies who have won both end of a back-to-back games so, I think you're worrying just a tad too much. Besides, it was a just a 30 minutes drive.

As for the controversy, there is ABSOLUTELY no doubt that JQ will start against any team in the nhl during the playoffs. But if JB were to win tonight, there sure will be a seed of doubt not only with the fans and media but even with DS, kings and most importantly JQ.
