Here's what I have for the 7 years since the lockout. I may have made some mistakes, feel free to double check any playoff season.

First, just the OT data:

Year Min G G/60
2012 267.35 25 5.61
2011 277.48 22 4.76
2010 197.33 18 5.47
2009 150.00 16 6.40
2008 214.20 16 4.48
2007 352.28 17 2.90
2006 223.92 20 5.36
Total 1,682.6 134 4.78

Here's the actual GPG, total G/60, G/60 in regulation and G/60 in OT:

Year GPG G60 RG60 OTG60
2012 4.84 4.72 4.69 5.61
2011 5.61 5.46 5.48 4.76
2010 5.98 5.87 5.88 5.47
2009 5.48 5.41 5.39 6.40
2008 5.46 5.25 5.27 4.48
2007 4.95 4.78 4.85 2.90
2006 5.66 5.54 5.54 5.36

To properly compare it to the regular season, one would have to deduct the OT goals or add the extra OT minutes in the regular season. What I liked about my methodology was that it allowed fairer comparison to regular season benchmarks to give a better frame of reference. We must realize that comparing playoff data from one season to the next and/or one player to the next is never close to fair, due to the large differences in team/opponent quality and other such factors.

The median time of an OT goal during this period was 7:19. The first 1/3 of the first OT period is highest scoring, less so in the second 1/3. After that, it further decreases until about halfway through the second OT period. Once it gets to that stage, it could go on for a while.

Goals vs. Time in OT:



Same but only for first ~30 minutes of OT:
