MOSCOW, May 20. /TASS/. The Congress of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) ruled on Friday to reduce the number of players allowed in overtime periods of group stage matches at world championships to the format of ‘3-on-3’.
The five-minute length of overtimes in round robin stages of world championships remained unchanged.
Overtime periods in playoff matches will be played for 10 minutes in the format of ‘4-on-4’ and an overtime in the match for the championship’s title will be played for 20 minutes in the format of ‘5-on-5’.
Opponents go for a penalty shootout in case none of both teams score in overtime.
