All series will be a home and home format and if the teams are tied with one win each, they will play a 15 minute Extra Time period. If they are still tied, it will advance to golden-goal overtime.
EXTRA TIME (PLAYOFFS ONLY):
If the playoff series is tied after the 2nd game, there will be an additional Extra Time Period which will be treated as an entirely new game. The 1st period of the extra time will be a full 15-minute period. New lineups will be submitted just like the start of a new game. If tied after the 1st full 15-minute period, additional overtime periods of 10-minutes sudden victory periods will be played. The extra time period will begin 15-minutes after the conclusion of the prior game. Accumulated time penalties and fouls will not carry over from the prior game to the extra time period with the exception of red cards. A player issued a red card in the prior game will be suspended for the extra time period. Teams will be permitted two (2) 60-second timeouts in extra time. There will be no media timeouts. Each team will be permitted (1) one challenge during extra time that will initiate a VR. Each period will be treated as a quarter in regards to player foul accumulation. If a player accumulates 4 fouls in two periods (Extra Time and one 10-minute golden goal period); the penalty is a 2-minute power play.
