A tough decision can be made easier with these charts showing you the best five and worst five schedules for upcoming seven-day periods. Some of you used them last year but for the benefit of new readers here is a refresher. The number next to the team indicates the 'multiplier' to use on a player's point-per-game pace to give you an idea how many points to expect for that week.

 

Rest of the Year Look Ahead


Since there is only a week of regular season hockey in the month of April, I`ve turned the usual Monthly Look Ahead to a look at how many games each team will have left in their schedule as of March 1. The number in brackets indicates how many games that team has in the month of March.

 

21 Games: Boston (17), NYR (17)

 

20 Games: Florida (16), New Jersey (17), San Jose (17),

 

19 Games: Buffalo (16), Calgary (17), Carolina (16), Columbus (16), Edmonton (15),
Minnesota (15), NYI (15), Phoenix (16), Pittsburgh (15), Tampa Bay (15), Washington (16)

 

18 Games: Anaheim (14), Colorado (16), Dallas (15), Detroit (14), Los Angeles (15), Montreal (15), Nashville (15), Philadelphia (16), St. Louis (15), Toronto (15), Vancouver (15)

 

17 Games: Chicago (14), Ottawa (13), Winnipeg (14)

 

Derek Roy`s resurgence might come a halt with Buffalo`s road trip; nine of 12 on the road (1.85 goals per game)


Losers of 11 of their last 13 on the road, Chicago plays five of next six away from the United Centre; at LA, Dal, Det, StL, Ott.


The Blue Jackets play......wait, no one cares


Los Angeles actually scores slightly more on the road, so be happy that Jeff Carter could be arriving for a stretch of seven of ten away from home.


Pittsburgh doesn`t play until Saturday, but have six of their next eight at home.


The Blues six game road trip starts on Thursday night in Nashville. Completely different team at home (4th in goals) than on the road (29th in goals).


In the midst of a six game trip as well, Vancouver then plays seven at home, four on the road and then six of seven at home to finish the year.
