Late Night Update. Playoff OTs in July/August Will Be Decided by Shootout

April 1, 2020, 1:27 AM ET [27 Comments]
Sorry for the 1:25am Updated....but I just got off a Skype call with an NHLPA source (currently out west) and the NHLPA and NHL have agreed that should the NHL playoffs take place in July and August all tie games will have a 5 minute 5 on 5 OT and then be decided by a shootout since the ice conditions that time of year won’t support long OTs.

This is really awful. I don't know about you, but the NHL playoff OT is what we all look forward to...but I guess something is better than nothing...

Your thoughts?
