We play Lightning 5 times (3 at home), Winnipeg 4 times (2 at home), Washington 5 times (2 at home), and Florida 4 times (2 at home).
Quick count shows 9 back to backs.
3-2 split in favor of home games this month. 9-5 split in favor of road games in February (including a six game road trip). 8-6 split in favor of home games in March. 8-7 split in favor of home games for the month of April.
Looks like we have home and homes with Buffalo (Jan. 24 & Jan. 25) and Florida (Mar. 2 & Mar. 3).
We play the Bruins, Penguins, and Rangers 2 times each in April. We'll either have to beat them to get into the playoffs or tear it up in the 1st half of the season. No late season pushes seam possible.
