### What is the typical length of a Kings Hockey game from start to finish including timeouts and breaks?

Sixty minutes. A hockey game consists of three twenty-minute periods. If the score is tied at the end of the third period, the teams play a five-minute sudden-death overtime period. If neither teams score in the overtime, the game ends as a tie. In the playoffs, games cannot end in a tie. So instead of a five-minute overtime, a playoff game has an extra 20-minute sudden-death overtime period. If neither team scores, then there is another 20-minute overtime, and so on, until someone scores.

Detroit scored in the sixth overtime to win the game 1-0.
