If Ottawa wins the East

They will play exactly 1 game between Oct 14 and the Nov. 19 Eastern Final.

So, rested? Or rusted?

Definitely a bizarre schedule this year for Ottawa, with their bye weeks both coming at the end of the year.

The schedule was ridiculous.

If you are the team that has to play two games in the same week, then the least that they can do is give you halfway decent bye weeks.
