It compels me to say that sudden death overtime is the only way a playoff hockey game should ever be decided.
Gary Bettman and his team of buffoons can fumble perfect marketing opportunities, bungle year-long strikes and allow the league to expand to places where ice barely exists, but they must not be allowed to ruin the playoffs.
Pittsburgh - Detroit was a classic. San Jose - Dallas was pretty damn amazing. And the tennis equivalent of a multi-OT game was compelling to even the most casual observers. Let that be a lesson to the NHL.
Please, don't fuck this up.
