VANCOUVER - Believing that too many games are decided in shootouts, NHL general managers have recommended that at least part of overtimes feature three-on-three play, a format that would have to be approved by the players association. The Flyers seem to favor the new format, which would create wide-open play and reduce the number of shootouts. The Flyers are 3-9 in shootouts this season and an NHL-worst 30-60 since the rule was adopted in 2005-06. "Considering our shootout record, it might help," Flyers coach Craig Berube said Tuesday after the team's morning skate.

Olin McClendon never expected to be in this position. When his Cherry Hill East teammate Jake Silpe fired a three-pointer to win the game, the ball hit nothing but backboard.

With Silpe providing another vintage performance, East defeated Cherokee, 48-39, in double overtime Monday in a wild South Jersey Group 4 final. It was the second consecutive sectional title for East, which also beat Cherokee in last year's championship game.
