And thus the boring, conservative overtime that existed before. People are quick to point to OT loss points but don't equate that a lot of OT wins (that don't show as OT wins, just wins) do so because of the aggressive play and poorer defense in OT. It's a two way street and I personally like the play in overtime for the regular season. At times it's the most exiting hockey of the entire game. If teams battle to a tie after 60 minutes of hard fought hockey then they deserve the point in my opinion.
