As I believe was stated, time is money. Scheduling more time is more money to the people playing obviously.

The rinks book as many games, practices, etc. as they can in a day to make their money. The organization or league book X amount of time for each game. The rink has no responsibility to have extra time between games for them to finish the game. The league or organization didn't pay for that extra ice time and they aren't going to give it away or mess up their schedule.

By the way, I'm in not Canada. I'm in the Pittsburgh area and game curfews are the standard at all rinks. The local HS league made their period lengths longer this year to try and use more of the ice time that they pay for. In doing this, they are risking having more games curfewed though.
