So now that 3-on-3 OT is happening, what about the format?

17 March 2015 - 04:21 PM

AHL format or 5 minutes of 3-on-3? Personally, I still think they should go with a two period format, so a long play doesn't end up cutting into 3 on 3 time. I'd like something like the AHL format of 7 minutes total, with a set 4 minutes of 4 on 4 and 3 minutes of 3 on 3 or vice versa.




"The question now is which of two ideas to use: five minutes of 3-on-3 or the American Hockey League format. Starting this season, the AHL went to seven minutes of OT – 4-on-4 until the first whistle after the three-minute mark, then 3-on-3.


The GMs will discuss it with their coaches and players. The competition committee, which includes representatives from the NHL Players’ Association, will discuss it. Ultimately rule changes must be approved by the NHL Board of Governors.


If all the hurdles are cleared, the NHL could have 3-on-3 OT as soon as next season."

Schneider credited defenseman Marek Zidlicky with saving a goal with the Devils hanging to a 1-0 lead and 8:59 left in the second period. Joe Vitale had batted the puck out of mid-air in the left circle and it bounced past Schneider's left pad, but Zidlicky was behind him in the crease to swat it away with his stick.


“I didn't really get a good look at it, but it looked like he whacked it away, so I guess I owe him dinner for that now,” Schneider said.


When Cammalleri said after the Devils' 4-2 win over Vancouver on Friday that Schneider owed the team dinner for finally getting his first win over his former team, Schneider joked that he would take his teammates to Red Lobster.


Schneider had a different restaurant chain in mind for Zidlicky's dinner. “Applebee's,” he said.
