It's mildly annoying, but I won't stress about it unless the NHL decides to implement the SO or 3 vs 3 OT in the playoffs. Part of the problem is Bruins' coaching. Some of the OTs this season have featured some very bizarre combos, players left on the bench who clearly have more ability than players who get ice time, and even fourth liners seeing ice time. The approach sometimes seems to be that defense is thought of more than offense by the coaching staff. OT is all about possessing the puck and scoring as a result of valuing that possession. It favors skill players, not grinders. There indeed should be no excuse for a team as gifted as the Bruins to have the OT and SO record they have.
