GMs considering minor changes to overtime

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Dry-scraping the entire ice sheet and requiring teams to switch ends after regulation are two modifications to the current overtime format which are gaining momentum after the first day of the annual March meetings of the League's general managers.

The managers are considering the changes as a way to have more games end in overtime rather than the shootout.

Since 2005-06, when the shootout was implemented, approximately 57 percent of the games which have gone to overtime were decided in a shootout, a number the GMs would like to see decline.

"Anything that reduces the number of shootouts I would vote for," Calgary Flames president of hockey operations and acting general manager Brian Burke said.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The NHL's 30 general managers spent the first day of the annual March meeting discussing a variety of possible changes to the game. However, there did not appear to be appetite for large-scale change.

The meeting Monday, which lasted approximately four hours, featured three breakout groups, each consisting of a panel of 10 general managers. The main topics discussed were: potential changes to the current overtime format; the possibility of expanding the scope of video review and/or implementing a coach's challenge; and an examination of goaltender interference, including the possibility of adding a video-review element.

The GMs will meet in full-group sessions Tuesday and Wednesday, but seem to be taking more of a wait-and-see approach this time around.

The 41-year-old is best known in Canada for his news-focused talk show on CBC, but said he got his start as a sports reporter, including time at the radio station now known as Sportsnet 590 AM.

"A lot of people don't realize I started my career in sports and I was in sports long before I was on television," Stroumboulopoulos said. "That's how I learned how to interview, talking to athletes pre- and postgame."

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The Washington Capitals' road to a Stanley Cup Playoff berth is littered with potential potholes.

Beginning with a home-and-home series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday and Tuesday, seven of Washington's next nine games are against teams currently ranked among the NHL's top 10.

Six of the Capitals' seven opponents during this stretch occupy playoff spots as of Monday, and the one that does not, the Vancouver Canucks, is not exactly a pushover despite its recent pratfalls.

A three-game road trip through California awaits March 18-22. The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are tied for the second-most home wins League-wide with 24. In regards to the Sharks specifically, the Capitals are 1-15-2 against them since the start of the 1999-00 season and have not won in San Jose since Oct. 30, 1993.

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
