Yup, you read it right. 11 of the first 15 games of the season are ON THE ROAD.
Now, don’t fear. Gary Bettman is not to blame. Remember, January is always a heavy travel month, due to the Grammys, which will be on Feb. 10th at Staples. So they set up shop for a week, which makes for a long trip.
But still… after waiting SOOOOOO long for the season to start, to have the team start the first month of action on the road… it’s just… typical.
Hey, the Ducks don’t have it much better. Nine of their first 15 games are away from the Pond. I’ll be making a blog post later about the top five games to watch.
