They were tired because they are out of shape, a bag skate puts them more in shape for later in the season. Being tired isn't an excuse in the NHL, when every pt is important, your players should be able to compete for every minute. I could understand if it was game 70, but this is game 9, you shouldn't be getting dominated by a team like Calgary no matter the circumstances. Rest can come later in the season when it is more needed.
