How do you think the changes in the Overtime format will effect NHL games?
Lesser shoot outs? Does it have a benefit for Home Teams or Fav?
It may be harder to defend when there are only 3 vs 3 on the ice. This may cause fewer shoo outs.
What do you think?

Exact change in the Overtime format: it was 4 vs 4, now it is 3 vs 3

Nothing evident to support the guess, but I’d guess less shootouts. More open ice, more room to maneuver a quality shot against a goalie. A turnover or counterattack can easily create an odd man rush.

Further look at the OT rule change. It basically guesses teams with elite offensive minded players and/or elite goaltenders should be priced higher.

Seems like 3 on 3 hockey changed the mechanics of NHL Betting a bit. The games decided in shootouts or overtime has dropped from 23% over the years to nearly 16% this season so far. I know very small sample. This seem to favor many betting angels.
