Seems like overtimes have ended a lot faster the last few years than I can ever remember.

The marathon overtime games of the past are fading away. About 10 years ago especially, there were multiple OT games seemingly every night.

I guess in one sense, this era of hockey brings more exciting back and forth OT's, hence the game ends faster. Ten years ago, there was more trapping and less chances, hence the games went on longer. Of course, there are still games from time to time that go multiple OT's (we already had one in these playoffs), but I'm noticing they're becoming more rare.

Personally, I miss seeing longer overtime games, especially when other teams are playing. Just seeing the grind and tear that long games have on the players adds to the playoff excitement. Goals in such games are so backbreaking for the team that loses them. Now, the games end before I can even sit down to watch the OT.

Yeah, it seems teams are much more willing to trade chances now. The refs also don't really put their whistles away anymore like they used to either.

I think that will change a little bit in the next rounds as the teams with relatively poor defense and sub-par goaltending will be mostly eliminated.

Well, the OT's haven't been one sided, just really free flowing and open. Even the teams that will advance have played that open style.

Many of these games aren't even going 5 minutes before they're over.

#2295372 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

I liked that I got negged for saying that the blame shouldn't be dumped on just one person, that everyone involved played a part in us getting bounced out in the first round. I wasn't aware that was verboten around these parts.

I forgot how quickly you guys jump ship. I still have faith in the Wings.

This ship is sinking faster than that famous one 100 years ago.
