BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) NHL general managers spent the first day of their three-day meetings discussing overtime and shootouts, expanded video reviews and goalie interference.
The opening session Monday featured three breakout groups of 10 general managers, with each group assigned particular topics.
There appears to be some concern that too many games are being decided in shootouts instead of during the flow of play. Of the 135 of 963 games played through last Saturday, 14 percent were decided in a shootout. And 40 percent that went to overtime were decided in a shootout.
