Apparently the Ducks' schedule has them doing three in a rows a couple times. I guess Donald Fehr helped out to create the schedule and his baseball background bled into his work.

Quite honestly, with the way some buildings are jam packed for events (Staples being one), I'm surprised there were no weekend day/night doubleheaders. What I find odd about this, is in 1995 the lockout ended roughly the same time and the regular season ended May 3. What was so pressing this time around to end it 6 days earlier? If they had gone to May 3, it would have given a bit of breathing room to the schedule and allowed for better travel connections and wouldn't resemble baseball.
