You wanna know a big problem with the NHL that nobody talks about? 2 intermissions.  Sports fans can really only tolerate 1 major stoppage during a 3 hour event before they lose interest.  The easy solution is to just split every game into two 30 minute halves, but a hockey rink doesn’t work that way.  By minute 22 or 23 […]
