The game loses some integrity and credibility, when the timing is different.
The game has never had integrity or credibility. It's been my biggest problem with the Winter Classic from Day One.
It's great from a spectacle point of view, but when you realize that the game is really just another regular season game that counts in the standings, and the rules change, it destroys the integrity of the season.
Let's say Detroit misses the playoffs by one point. They may have been able to win in OT, but the game was stopped at 2:30 of OT to change sides.
