Not a surprise, was discussed all season but looks like it is close to being final:
In a release from the NCAA today, it says the rules committee has voted to maintain the current game structure of 60 minutes, followed by a five-minute overtime, but individual conferences are allowed to use a shootout at their discretion.
The shootout could be used to award points towards the league race, though any game decided by a shootout would go into the record book for NCAA Tournament qualifying purposes as a tie.
Take? Nice!! Got to do it. If the CCHA doesn’t adopt this we riot. I’ll be watching.
UPDATE: The Blog that Yost Built breaks the proposed rule changes into tiny little pieces, as you’d expect.
