from Paul Hunter of the Toronto Star,
“I think the overtime should go to four-on-four. I think it creates more ice; it creates more chances,” Ruff said yesterday. “(In overtime) teams get fatigued. The scoring chances go way down.”
Ruff said the additional 37 minutes of hockey on Sunday produced five combined scoring chances from both teams.
“I looked around and it looked like people had left. I don’t think people want to come here to see six periods of hockey and the last three periods (have) one or two scoring chances. I don’t think that’s what the game is about.
“Two or three periods of overtime, I don’t think it’s good for the game.”
