Yes - teams in the west travel more but since today all teams use pampered charters it isn't that bad.
The Bruins did a smart thing in 2011 - in both the ECF and SCF they did not fly after the games in Tampa and Vancouver but flew the next morning and then practiced when they got home.
The big plus is every team goes to every rink at least once. The Bruins/Hawks used to have a great rivalry but not so much the past 25 years.
But Bruins/Hawks did give the NHL video replay. I am a Bruins fan and I left the Garden feeling horrible for the Hawks after this.
