BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Overtime changes and video review are expected to be on the agenda when NHL general managers begin meeting in Boca Raton.

The general managers want to reduce the number of shootouts that decide regular-season games. This year, 122 of 967 games have gone to a shootout.

Proposals include adding more time to the current four-on-four overtime, instituting a three-on-three element and having teams switch ends with the hope that the long line change leads to more mistakes and odd-man rushes.

Expanded video review became a bigger issue in January when the Detroit Red Wings scored a goal against the Los Angeles Kings that should not have counted because the puck hit the protective netting first.

This is the first of three days of meetings in Florida.
