Should Playoff Overtime Be Changed? Fri's Buzz

May 19, 2023, 3:01 PM ET [88 Comments]
After watching a 7 period hockey game last night, the question has to be asked….

Is the way we do playoff overtime worth it?

My answer is absolutely. 100%. I would hate to live to the day we see shootouts in the NHL playoffs…I know some players would prefer that….but that is soccer’s problem…

I love me a 4 OT game…

However, I do see the issues a game like last night can cause…Both of these teams will feel this game in game 2 for sure, and if we see any more extra time it could hinder their chances for Cup.

My solution….

Wh not go to 4 v 4 unlimited OT?

I really dont want to change anything, HOWEVER, I am hearing some team rumblings out there and players as well. 4 v 4 would still be hockey, but it is doubtful it would go multiple overtimes. This could save injuries and competition in future games…

What say you?
