    That would be a 26% increase in ties.

    Go back to sudden death, why make it so complicated . SD worked for years.
    Firstly, how many of those 22 games which went over 10 minutes ended in a tie anyway?

    Secondly, where are you getting your 26% increase from?

    5 tie games since 2012

    83 overtime games simple math 22 games. 26% of 83 is 21.58 rounded to 22

    Even at 5 ties off the 22 would be 17 games a 20% increase in ties.

    There is a substantial difference between 5 tie games and 22 in the same time period.
