Can someone please tell why the Pens and the Caps will play back to back games (Games 4 & 5), when none of the other series have back to back games scheduled, in fact the other 3 series have at least a one 2 day rest in between certain games in their series.  I just don't understand the reasoning for it, it's the playoffs, there should never be any games played 2 straight days, especially when there's traveling involved as the would be if the series goes at least 5 games, both teams would have to travel from Pittsburgh to D.C., all be it, it may be a short trip.  I understand it's the NHL and these guys should be able to play whenever, but the players should be given rest in between games as it has always been in the past in the playoffs, I think Bettman and his staff should be drug tested, because they surely must be on something when they created this series schedule.
