I hate to think what all these OT games are doing to the hometown fans\' blood pressures!
and TV ratings. My bet is it isn\'t necessarily a good thing for the NHL. I know that might sound ridiculous, but imagine how much programming gets jerked around and how many TV fans will shut it off before it is over. It\'s one thing to allot three hours of your time to a game, but it is quite another to sit there for five hours.
I\'m not complaining. Don\'t get me wrong. I want seven OT games every match-up, every round. 4-5 game series suck, especially when they\'re more than not decided in the 2nd and 3rd games.
