If the NHLPA ratifies the NHL’s protocols for the 24-team playoff, fans will soon be binge-watching hockey.
According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the NHL will re-start the season playing a total of six games a day from 12 PM to 10 PM EST. Three games will be played in Toronto and three others will be hosted in Edmonton, which is two hours behind (Mountain Time). With each game lasting approximately two-and-a-half hours, that’s 15 hours of hockey per day at least.
When you factor in that playoff overtime rules could extend games even longer… whelp… you may forget to shower most days.
