Good break down here: http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=723416


The Toronto Maple Leafs will host Eastern Conference division rival Montreal Canadiens at Air Canada Centre on Wednesday, October 8 to open their 2014-15 regular season. It will be the first of four overall meetings against Montreal and it’s the sixth consecutive season that the Canadiens will be the Leafs’ opponent on Opening Night.

All 30 teams will again play in all 30 arenas at least once during the season. The Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings will visit Toronto for the only time on Sunday, December 14. The Leafs will play each Western Conference team once at home and once on the road in 2014-15.

Saturday night games once again dominate the Leafs schedule with Toronto playing 24 times on Saturday (14 at home and 10 on the road).

The busiest month for the club is December and March as the team will play 15 games overall in each month. The busiest home month is also December and March plus November with eight games while the busiest road month will be in January with nine games. The Leafs will close out the regular season schedule by hosting Montreal again on Saturday, April 11. The team will also play eight preseason games from September 22 to October 3.

Radio and television broadcast information, along with single game ticket availability for the 2014-15 season, will be available at a later date.

Other Schedule Notes:

• The longest road stretch occurs from December 21 to January 3 (seven games). The most recent stretch of having seven straight away from Air Canada Centre occurred during the 2007-08 campaign.

• The longest home stand is five games (November 29 to December 9).

• The Leafs will play on consecutive nights on 18 occasions.

• The Leafs will have at least one home game on each day of the week in 2014-15 for the second time in as many seasons.

That home stretch just before the road stretch will be key.

how does that 18 back to backs stack up against the rest of the league?

You'd think they'd try and even it up more... back to backs over the last 3 seasons:

Toronto 51
Buffalo 53
Columbus 52

Calgary 32
Winnipeg 32
Colorado 32

To be fair, those teams travel much higher distances than the Leafs.

Definitely a big difference in distances travelled but i wonder if it really makes that much difference over the course of an entire season vs that big of a difference in back to back games.

Leafs play a high percentage of their games in the same TZ as well...teams in the Western Conference, especially teams like Edmonton, Calgary and Colorado have to play a lot of games out of their home timezones.

Partial season tickets this year so I will have to put some time into studying this schedule over the next few week so i can be ready for the ticket draft.
