Probably not as much as a 20 minute OT but less than 10;

A 5 minute OT takes on average 7 and a half minutes when no goals are scored (remember no TV timeouts). A shootout takes 3-5 minutes from the end of OT just to get started with the flooding. Then there's the minimum 4 shots which take 15-20 seconds each.

Once you factor in that OT can end any given time, a 10 minute OT would be quicker than a shootout.
