Back-2-Back games affect Canes outcome?

Excellent article from "On the Forecheck" about the number of back-to-back games each team has vs. the number of opponents playing back-to-back nights. As shown there, The Canes have one of the worst schedules in the NHL in this regard, we play 21 B2B series (Only Buffalo has more with 22 while Vancouver/Edmonton have only 11) and play only 16 opponents who are on B2B games giving us a (-5) rating. When every single game counts and Playoff spots are determined by 2-3 points, is this a big negative for the Canes?

 

For reference, the Panthers have the most favorable schedule in the NHL with a +9 using this method. Washington came in at +5, Tampa Bay is even, and Atlanta is a league worst (-7) which doesn't look too good for them.
