Fans Accuse Gary Bettman Of Rigging The Global Series In The Leafs Favor

Fans accuse Gary Bettman of favoring the Toronto Maple Leafs
During their time in Sweden, three of the four teams in Detroit, Ottawa and Minnesota were forced to play back-to-back games, with the Senators forced to take two home games to Sweden.
Unsurprisingly however, not only were the Maple Leafs allowed to use two away games for this trip, but they didn't once play a back-to-back, and instead played both of their games against teams on the second night of their back-to-back.
Possible reasoning behind the move from the NHL?
Like most things in the NHL, this one clearly came down to money, as Senators announcers during the games noted this was done because the Leafs are one of the biggest money makers in the entire league.
Ultimately, this should come as no surprise to anyone, as the Leafs have always been a darling in the eyes of the NHL, but it's still doesn't seem right on the part of the league.
ARE THE NHL FAVOURING TORONTO IN THIS SERIES?
