Tortorella: ‘Get rid of the shootout, play 3-on-3 until a team dies’

The Score

If it were up to John Tortorella, the NHL would scrap its current method of deciding games that don't end after five minutes of extra time.

"Get rid of the shootout (and) just play the three-on-three until a team dies," the Columbus Blue Jackets head coach told reporters Friday, one day after his club defeated the Philadelphia Flyers on Seth Jones' overtime winner.

"I think that's the way it should be," Tortorella added. "(Three-on-three is) exciting."

The Blue Jackets are 8-2 in overtime this season, and they've played only one shootout, losing to the New York Rangers on Nov. 10.
