Shootouts Need To Go

from the South End (student newspaper of Wayne State Univ.),
There are many factors and strategies that determine the winner of an NHL hockey game. The Scotty Bowman ingenious mastery of juggling lines. The Dave Lewis stupidity of juggling lines. Quick shifts to compensate for tired legs. Icing calls leading to critical face-offs in an opponent’s zone late in the game. Power-play combinations. Penalty-killing combinations. The list goes on and on. With the “New NHL,” another factor comes into play: the shootout, otherwise known as the Mini-Mite Classic. Shootouts are for 8-year-old hockey players during intermissions at Joe Louis Arena during Red Wings home games.
