Christian Petersen

The Toronto Maple Leafs 2013 NHL Schedule has been released.

Key Dates and Facts About The Maple Leafs Schedule

Back-To-Backs

Games where Leafs play a back-to-back against a rested opponent: 9

Games where opponent plays back-to-back against rested Leafs: 2

Major Canadian Complaints

Ottawa never has to face the Maple Leafs in the second game of a back-to-back

The Maple Leafs play on Hockey Night In Canada 14 times this year

Television Schedule

In addition to the 14 games on HNIC on CBC the Maple Leafs will play on TSN ten times and the NHL Network another six times

That means that the Maple Leafs could be on national television of some sort up to 30 times out of their 48 games.

This means that that leaves 24 games to be split between Sportsnet, Maple Leafs TV, and possibly the subsidiary TSN channels

Update: There will be 10 games on LeafsTV and 14 on Sportsnet Ontario

Via wetcardboard: There are four times where the Leafs game may NOT be shown nationally on CBC;

Saturday February 16th - Philadelphia @ Montreal could be the national broadcast instead of Ottawa @ Toronto

Saturday February 23rd - New York Rangers @ Montreal could be the national broadcast instead of Toronto @ Ottawa because NY/MTL are both original six teams

Saturday March 30th - New York Rangers @ Montreal AGAIN since Toronto is @ Ottawa AGAIN depending on if CBC likes having lower ratings than possible

Saturday April 6th - Boston @ Montreal could be the national broadcast instead of Toronto @ New Jersey because everyone loves watching the Bruins and Montreal

Divisional schedule

The Leafs play the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators five times each

The Leafs will get the extra home game against Montreal and the extra road game against Ottawa

The Leafs play the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres four time each

Schedule Congestion

While it isn't that much congested as a normal 82 game season the Leafs do play 14 games in March

The Leafs also play 15 games in February

That entire month will at least feel like the players based on the density of games

James Van Riemsdyk returns to Philadelphia on Monday February 25, 2013

Luke Schenn will return to Toronto on Monday February 11, 2013

Jonas Gustavsson will not return to Toronto because he will be out of the league before next year
