To fix the issue of backups who only face weak teams, you could create a "strength of opposition" value based on the goals-for or shooting percentage of the opposing team (not sure which would be better, probably shooting percentage) and use it to weigh each game - in other word's a lot of work.

To deal with the issue of back-to-backs, you would have to look at the average drop in performance in the second game of back to backs.
