Isles Sked: Lots of back to backs -- few miles

A couple more schedule notes-- these courtesy of http://www.ontheforecheck.com/2012/6/21/3105520/nhl-super-schedule-travel-miles-team

He has computed that the Isles will travel 30,072 miles this season -- the 2nd fewest in the NHL.  The league wide average is 39,792.  (Philadelphia is the lowest --27,541)

The Isles will play 16 back-to-backs, tied with several teams, including NJ for the league lead.  The leaguewide average is 13.4.
