Other than the back to back it looks like a pretty typical playoff series schedule.

Why do they need a back to back? Who else could possibly be using the stadium?

It's because most series' are starting this Saturday/Sunday but the North division doesn't start until Wednesday/Thursday because of the re-scheduled/pointless Vancouver games... so they need to play a little catch-up.

I imagine we'll see at least one b2b in the next round, as well. That should get them to just about in line with the other divisions (unless both 1st round match ups end quickly and they can start the 2nd round at the same time as the other divisions).

Yeah I hate the idea of the back to back.  I guess if you are going to have one in the middle of the series is probably better than later though heading into the next round.  Just beat the heck out of them in 4 and be done with it.

I still don't understand why we need to wait for Calgary and Vancouver to play meaningless games to start the postseason.  Both series could have started on Tuesday to avoid the double header and still finished

Leafs/Habs - Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday/Monday/Thursday/Saturday/Monday
Jets/Oilers - Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday/Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Sunday

Problem solved.

I still have nightmares of back to backs from that flyers series. And if memory serves it was also a night game followed by a day game.

Leafs in 4.

Leafs in 2, with Habs forfeiting their 2 homes games because they can't bear the embarrassment any longer.
