No Long Overtimes In Playoffs

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,
With the playoffs around the corner, shootouts soon will be put on the shelf for a few months. But don't expect a bunch of overtime games stretching into the fifth and sixth periods, as has been the norm in recent seasons. The National Hockey League's on-ice officials have been given the message and they have embraced it. There will be no deterioration of the strict anti-restraint standards that were imposed during the regular season. As a result, once the playoffs start, you'll see the same type of officiating you've been seeing for six months. That means you'll see as many power plays in overtime as you see in regulation time. And when that happens, the goals will come.
