Ovechkin, Crosby OK Skipping Straight To Postseason 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Mar 27, 2020 6:49 am

If the NHL were to resume play this season, Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby wouldn\'t mind skipping right to the postseason. Of course, it helps that the Capitals and Penguins were in first place and third place in the Metropolitan Division, respectively, when the NHL paused play on March 12.

\"I\'d rather start the playoffs right away,\" Ovechkin said on a video call with reporters on Thursday. \"Sorry, guys.\"

Crosby said he would like to \"get in as many games as you can.\"

Teams have played 71 games, those in the wildcard race should play to complete 71 games. If after they are tied, play a 1 game elimination game. If played on a neutral site, give the puck to the home team to start each period.
