3-on-3 overtime to be tested in preseason games

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

The National Hockey League has designated certain games on its upcoming 2015 preseason schedule in which the participating teams will test and practice the new ‘3-on-3’ overtime format. This is done in order to ensure that players, coaches and officials have at least a minimum of exposure to the new overtime format, and that they have a chance to practice the new format before the beginning of the regular season.

Here is a list of the 3 preseason games the Canadiens will play that will feature a five-minute, sudden-death, 3-on-3 overtime period – regardless of the score at the end of regulation time:

TUESDAY, SEPT. 22
Toronto at Montreal, 7:30 PM

SATURDAY, SEPT. 26
Montreal at Toronto, 7:30 PM

SATURDAY, OCT. 3
Montreal at Ottawa, 7:00 PM
