    There doesn't seem to be anywhere else to put this, so here goes...


    Team Points Maximum Wins Range
    BC 28 36 14 1-6
    UMA 26 32 12 1-8
    ME 25 29 11 1-9
    UC 24 30 11 1-9
    UML 24 30 10 1-9
    BU 23 29 9 1-9
    NU 21 29 10 1-9
    PC 21 25 9 4-9
    UNH 19 27 9 3-9

    Only BC and UMass have clinched a playoff berth.
    No team has clinched home ice.
    All nine teams in contention can still earn home ice.
    Seven teams can still win the regular season title.

    The most fun scenario I have found is a six-way tie for second place.

    I think ai has gotten to the point where they can lie and mimic human emotions.

    Having said all of this I believe it is proper to subject Sean to lie detector testing.

    Now, I don’t think it is fair I ask all 78 questions. So we have decided a true fair test is to hook this Sean AI robot to lie detector. And each fan gets to ask three pressing questions for whatever they come up with.

    Hopefully Sean agrees this is clearly a fair trade off and is in his best interest. Otherwise I will ask all 78 questions.

    That happens during the media timeouts that are already happening.

    And what is this about TV timeouts when a game isn't on TV? That doesn't make sense. Are you sure you're not talking about the midway point in the period when they come out and clean the ice?

    I feel like 3 on 3 overtime is played so the team with possession tires out the opponent then pounces on their tired opponent.

    I'm now convinced Sean isn't a human being. There is no way he has this much information committed to memory or available at the click of a button. It's some sort of A.I. Maybe part of Skynet. It seems harmless enough because it's just posting stuff about sports, but it's all a ruse to disarm us. It's only a matter of time before it leads the Robot Uprising.

    As for an extra timeout in OT, I don't see the need for that. You get one timeout per a 60 minute game so not sure there is a need to give you another one for a 20 minute OT.
    You get it for the 5 minute overtime as well.

    I've noticed this trend, especially this season of NHL games going to shootouts more often. I think NHL coaches have gotten players to be more conservative in OT, emphasizing possession above chances. It would probably happen in the NCAA's over time too.
    I had already researched the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons when the NHL went from 4x4 overtime to 3x3 overtime, so I also researched when the NHL went from 5x5 overtime to 4x4 overtime. I also researched the NHL's results for this season and I don't see that more games going to shootouts this season then in 2015-16.



    As can be seen the last season the NHL had 5x5 overtime nearly 75% of games that went to overtime remained tied. Going to 4x4 overtime dropped that to 56% remaining tied, which is also the same percentage for the last season the NHL had 4x4 overtime. Going to 3x3 overtime dropped the number of games that remained tied down to 39% in 2015-16 and currently 35% this season. So, in the NHL 3x3 overtime has reduced the number of ties by about 35%. So, if those percentages held for NCAA games 18-19 of the 109 would have been decided by 4x4 and 37 would have been decided by 3x3. Looking at the 4 leagues that play an extra 3x3 overtime period they have played 77 overtimes to-date, 52 (67.5%) which remained tied after the 5x5 overtime period. After the extra 3x3 overtime period 25 (32.5%) still remained tied. That is 35% less ties between 5x5 and 3x3 overtimes, about the same as the drop seen by the NHL. I find it interesting that the percentage of tied games after the 5x5 overtime in those leagues was higher, 67.5%, than the 55.4% of overtime games played without a second 3x3 overtime following that remained tied. It seems that the players and coaches in those leagues have gotten more conservative to try and insure they will get both points in league play and not take a loss that could affect their PWR rating.

    Welp, had no idea about 3v3 was AFTER 5v5 in NCHC. Didn't do my research and got caught red handed!

    What I am annoyed with is how the NCAA clamped down on Beanpot overtime rules, but allow NCHC's 3v3 overtime to factor into the pairwise ratings. Just give us back the Beanpot

    3x3 has been discussed before in both the Should College Hockey Should Adopt 3-on-3 OT thread and the NCAA Committee Recommends Change To Overtime In 2016-17 in which I posted this:

    To date this season there have been 179 ovetime games, of which 109, 60.9%, were still still tied after the 5 minute overtime.

    I think bringing 4v4 into Hockey East is fine.
