best0186 Posted January 25, 2016 Share Posted January 25, 2016 Does anyone know why the NCHC is doing both a 5 X 5 and a 3 X 3 overtime? Were they just experimenting with the 3 X 3 at this point? Also, the Sudden death shootout kind of threw me off this weekend. I guess I hadn't seen all aspects of overtime/shootout yet this season. I ask because to me it seems that two five minute overtime periods is kind of redundant. By the time the 3 X 3 started, it seems like both teams were so tired that it appeared they were skating in mud! The benefit of a 3 X 3 is a lot more open ice and speed. I didn't notice the speed. I thought the sudden death shootout was interesting too! I am not a big fan of a shootout in general, and sudden death just made it a bit more awkward! I guess if they were to change anything I would prefer that they eliminated the 5 X 5 overtime, and did a 3 X 3 overtime instead. Followed by a standard shootout if they had to keep the shootout.
