Eh, they do 5 on 5 now, then 3 on 3, then a shootout.

Honestly the 3 on 3 will get to a goal much faster. Usually they're all dog tired by the end of 3, so another P of 5 on 5 doesn't do a ton of good.

I don't think that's right. Regular season is 4 on 4, then a shootout (playoffs is still 5 on 5 all the time). The AHL had a hybrid system last season where they did a 4 on 4, then a 3 on 3, and then a shootout. It dropped shootouts by like something ridiculous and was viewed as generally an improvement on the tie/overtime issue. Weird that the NHL didn't implement that and went straight to a 3 on 3 free for all.

Either way, I like it. Should see a lot more games solved before the shootout. Although getting to see Kane do this is pretty fucking sick.
