Back-to-Back games

OK, so without going through the schedule for all 30 teams, I have to wonder if the Senators have had a "fair" schedule this season. I went through and counted no less than 17 times when the Sens are forced to play games on consecutive nights... and for the most part, game two is against a tough (Boston, NYR) or hated (Leafs, Habs) opponent.

Now, call this fan bias if you must, but does anyone know an easy way to determine how many B2B games other teams have to deal with? I realize that there will be times when it is necessary, due to concerts, arena availability and whatnot, but 17 times (34 games total) in an 82 game season seems a bit high to me.

Not only are there an unusually-high (to me, at least) number of back-to-back games, but there are also a huge number of weeks when we play a ridiculous amount of hockey, such as 4 games in 6 nights, 3 games in 4 nights, etc.

I'm just curious to see if this is, in fact, unfair.
