Rest can come later in the season when it is more needed.
They have been tired for 3 games in a row now. I wouldn't bag skate them but I would sure have a heart to heart with the boys about their commitment to conditioning.

It's only 9 freakin' games and they are tired for 1/3rd of them? That is unacceptable.

The schedule doesn't really get any lighter so if they are lackluster after Sharks and Coyotes...time for the garbage can at the center dot and let 'er rip.
