Speed It Up Toronto

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

Two reviews in Friday’s 6-1 loss to the Flyers, both taking apparent goals away from Tampa Bay, were several minutes long and contributed to a game that took almost three hours.

“It can be detrimental to the product when the game takes so long,” Lawton said, adding he would like to see reviews completed in 90 seconds.

“You just don’t want to see it open-ended. If it takes four or five minutes, it is not conclusive.”

Lawton was clear he was not complaining about either of Friday’s decisions and said the league’s operations staff “are the most honorable people I’ve ever met.”
