When 3-on-3 overtime was first introduced, we imagine some hockey fans were on the fence about the idea because of how "gimmicky" it was.
Fast forward to now, though, and we imagine those fans have changed their tune as 3-on-3 provides fans with fast paced action and scoring chances galore.
Not every overtime period is going to be entertaining, though, and that was the case Sunday in Washington.
The Capitals and Oilers have a ton of skill on their rosters, but the teams combined for just one shot in the extra frame before Washington won it in the shootout.
Braden Holtby made 29 saves and didn't allow a goal in the shootout to pick up the win, but after the game he was highly critical of the 3-on-3 overtime period.
With Connor McDavid, Alex Ovechkin and company on the ice in a 3-on-3 scenario, there should have been way more shots, but that unfortunately wasn't the case and fans won't be able to see the two teams make up for it because Sunday's game was their final meeting of the regular season (did someone say Stanley Cup Final preview?).
