If it's NHL Playoff Time.....

Then It must mean that there are going to be games that go into absurdly multiple overtimes.  Seems like every year, you have a couple games that go into 3 or 4 overtimes. I can only imagine the fatigue the players must feel   when you get into the 2nd or 3rd OT.  Games like that usually end on a fluke play, because they      just have no more energy to go on. If it's bad for the players, think about the people who watch the games on TV! A game usually starts around 7-8 PM local time, and these Multiple OT games can end  at 3 in the morning or later.  And if it's a game out west, then if you're in the Easter time zone, you have to add 3 hours to that, then  sleep in the next day!  The longest one I've ever watched was a 5 OT game between Philly and Pittsburgh about 5 or 6 years ago, it ended around 2:30 AM. But when my Washington Capitals get into one, I usually turn the game off, because they usually lose the long ones.
