NHL Teams Facing a Grueling Start to the 2013-14 Season

All 30 teams were forced into a sprint-like campaign because of the lockout in 2013.

The 2013-14 NHL season won't be truncated due to a work stoppage, meaning that squads will be able to settle into the usual rhythm of a season.

A few away games, come home for a small stand, maybe a back-to-back tossed in there for good measure. Rinse and repeat for 82 contests.

While that's the case for most of the teams in the NHL, there are a few franchises that weren't done any favors by the NHL's schedule makers.

Whether it's a ridiculous stretch on the road to open the season or an opening docket of games against tough teams, there are squads that are facing an uphill climb before the season even begins.
