No score keepers in our leagues in pittsburgh. Refs do it.

Running clock, if teams arent ready to faceoff at the 20 minute mark, the clock is rolling.

Sometimes we get that too. Better yet is once in a while the scorekeeper is also playing in the game. He'll jump into the keeper's box between shifts and toss stats into the computer

Makes me feel really fortunate that the leagues in the Chicago area aren't bush league like that.... Some of these stories are ridiculous....

Update: My car was in the shop the other day so my girlfriend had to drive to the rink and insisted on sticking around to watch, while my shots were lacking, luckily I was still able put up 3 assists looking like Adam Oates in his prime.. but back on topic, I had her watch the clock for me and came over to the boards by the bleachers to check with her at a stoppage and I made sure the scorekeeper saw/heard me do it. At that time he had already shaved off close to 3 minutes. The rest of the game he barely touched the clock if at all. The heat is on.

there are no stoppages in the first two periods, the score/timekeeper only stops the clock in the 3rd

That's different (and typical of beer leagues).

Where I've played, they've always blocked out 1.5 hours for each game- 15 minutes for the Zamboni, and then time for warmup and 3 20 minute periods, as well as a little cushion for games going into overtime and whatnot. If games are running late, they run late, and nobody has a problem with it. If things run really late, players usually grab a beer from the cooler and watch the previous game. Refs don't start ignoring the rules just go get things running faster, they continue to call a fair game.
And there's the source of the problem.

A rink that has 60-minute blocks (including resurfacing AND warmups) for each game is cramming their schedule too tightly. Not only are they failing to give adequate time for each event, but they're leaving no margin of error for delays. So, like a bunch of drivers who are failing to give each other a bit of following distance, a delay in your game causes a pileup that affects every event scheduled behind it. In a 90-minute block that's not a big deal, but in a 60-minute block it's a catastrophe.

Like everyone has said, clearly the issue needs to be taken to rink management. But, I wouldn't expect them to solve the problem. They're the ones creating the problem. It'll take significant pushback from the players in your league in order to make a change. Ultimately you probably need the captains in your league to co-sign a statement that time-shaving is unacceptable. With the understanding, of course, that everyone is willing to walk away from that rink if nothing changes.
