Don't see the big deal about regular season ties, especially in a non Conference game.
Because ties are stupid. I hate going to a game and having the possibility of two teams tying. I want there to be a winner and a loser. Especially since the OT rules are stupid. 5 on 5 with only 5 minutes of OT? Yeah, that's going to end with a lot of scoring.
My opinion is overtimes should either be 3 on 3 for 5 minutes, 4 on 4 for 10 minutes or 5 on 5 for 20 minutes.
