NHL Road Trip

The NHL schedule was released last week, and I put it through my patented NHL Road Trip spreadsheet which creates a simple matrix with the teams schedules listed in geographical order, so one can easily plan a trip. I do this every year just to see what possible trips would look like. With the 2010 Olympics being held during the season, the 82-game schedule is a bit more compact, which makes it a bit easier to plan a trip as there are less extended road trips.

This is the first trip I came across, using Ottawa as the starting point. I won't be taking it (the NFL trip, which is unlikely at this point, takes priority), but just posting it here for your perusal. Ambitious roadtrippers can add AHL games as well as ECHL games, although I'll leave that for an actual trip plan.

Some good games in there, a small break for Christmas, and finishing with Vancouver in Toronto - actually maybe I should do this trip after all. Anyone want to join?
