Scheduling

This is something I have noticed this year and don't remember ever seeing it in the past. The Wild have 6 weekends in a row where they play back to backs or three games in four days (Thurs./Fri. through Sun./Mon.) usually followed by an extended break.

Fri. Nov. 5
Sat. Nov. 6
4 days off

Thur. Nov. 11
Fri. Nov. 12
Sun. Nov. 14

Fri. Nov. 19
Sat. Nov. 20
3 days off

Fri. Nov. 26
Sat. Nov. 27
Mon. Nov. 29

Fri. Dec. 3
Sat. Dec 4
4 days off

Thur. Dec. 9
Sat. Dec. 11
Sun. Dec. 12
3 days off

What does everyone think about this?
Will it end up being a good or bad thing for the Wild?
As fans, do you like or dislike the format?
Do other teams have the same schedule?
Is this an NHL marketing tactic to attract fans on weekends?

It's more spread out than last year because there isn't a two-week Olympic break in the middle. Many teams do like weekend games as they can maximize attendance, which works as there's more opportunities to spread things out. It also doesn't help that the Twin Cities are horribly isolated so it makes to have a lot of back-to-back road games.
