Crazy scheduling quirks...

This 5 games in 7 days stretch is just nuts but it made me look ahead to see what else is on the horizon and the beginning of April is as weird as I have ever seen; the hawks play April 1 home v Nashville, April 4 home v Blues, April 6 @ Nashville and April 7 home v Nashville!

That's almost like a playoff round, playing the Preds 3 times in 7 days with a game vs the blues mixed in.

And for good measure, they finish the season series with Nashville on April 19th making it four games v them in 19 days!

During those first 7 days of April Nashville also plays Col (4/2) and Columbus (4/4) giving them 5 games in seven days.

This start is so important because giving guys rest in April is going to be paramount before the playoffs start imo. Teams who have to expend copious amounts of energy down the stretch just to get in may be in for a quick exit in this condensed year.
