It would have been a travesty if Brampton had pulled their own goalie and scored to avoid OT and put themselves in a better position to finish ahead of someone.
It would be a travesty if for instance in a round robin tournament a team finds out late in the game an upset score in an opposite group or they find out that a bunch of players from the first place team in the opposite group got suspended, whatever, and decide that they prefer a matchup with the first place team in the knockout round and play for the tie when they are up a goal, pull the goalie, score on themselves and finish second in their own group because there is no OT in round robin. Clear as mud?
In this case, Chiefs are trying to WIN by 3 and was well within the rules to do what they tried to do.
Keep your thinly disguised bias against the Chiefs at home and I'll try to do the same with my overt bias for the Chiefs. NOT! lol
