If it's a three-way tie it could be a cluster-**** to determine who gets the last spot. ROW might eliminate one team and then you can go to head-to-head.

And to add to your point, the whole point of ROW was to limit the significance of the shootout.

The statement is clear: the NHL values regulation and OT wins more than shootout wins. That's that.

Perhaps they should get rid of the shootout then! Please!

Seriously. I'd rather bring back ties than have a game decided by a skills competition. The shootout is entertaining and all but it's a terrible way to decided a game.

That's like the MLB playing 1 extra inning then having a HR Derby or the NBA playing their 5 min OT then have a 3-point contest.

Ties are a joke, in my opinion.



They need to remove the number of games in a season to 70 or so (no more back to backs) and allow for sudden death overtime until there is a winner. Remove points, and just base it on wins.

One of the main reasons I love NHL hockey is because you know there will be a winner at the end. Especially when you stay up at 3 am and it ends up being a tie. That's boring.

I agree with ArGarBarGar's proposition.

So the Preds have sent Watson & Forsberg down, it looks like Fisher is back tonight & they call up Joonas Rask. It also looks like Chris Mason is getting the start, he's got a.848 sv% this year so I'm expecting a vezina like performance from him tonight.

It's a wonderful way to decide a game. Skills are the integral part of hockey. This is why we watch NHL and not minor leagues. And who cares about MLB, Derby, or NBA?

Random Oil fan here, hope you guys can hold the line and stay in the playoffs. I always liked Detroit, and it would be a crime to let that playoff streak end.

That playoff streak is almost as impressive as Edmonton's is pathetic.

I wish baseball had a home run derby like hockey honestly. I don't wanna watch a 5 hr 14 inning game

I wonder if the Stars will even start Lehtonen on Saturday. He has been banged up and with them eliminated we might get a backup again. Just was slow to get up in this game.

The Stars look like they found out their bad news at intermission. Stupid penalty and then a pretty good shot right after the draw. They were dominating at the end of the second and just disappeared.

I'm amazed Letestu has scored 13 goals. This guy played a while for my local SEL2 team during the lockout and looked like your average league player.

Remember that game during the season where we let the Jackets score in the final minute to win in regulation, was it a Brunner turnover? Yeah was just thinking about that.
