Here’s the First 3-On-3 in NHL History (Video)

This season the NHL has implemented a 3-on-3 sudden death overtime period to try and reduce the number of overtime shootouts. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Philadelphia Flyers were the first to test the new overtime and it was glorious. Plenty of odd-man rushes, breakaways and great goalie saves.

There is so much ice to cover that the action is not stop with the puck racing from end to end.

We’re hoping that we see a lot of these overtimes this season and wondering how long before a 3-on-3 league pops up on TV.
