Don’t Mess with OT in the Playoffs

From Marty Henwood at Hockey.com:

How many times must it be said that the NHL shootout sucks? 

No, I didn’t stutter. It sucks, much like a working Hoover. The shootout should go the way of lava lamps, ‘80’s hair and Thomas Dolby. Just gone, yesterday’s news. Period.

Maybe I’m in the minority, but the shootout just doesn’t do it for me. They’re bad enough in the regular season.

But don’t even get me started if you are one of those who actually believe, while sober, that the league should mandate shootouts in place of these overtime marathons that last three, four, five extra periods.
