Canadians, I know you're out there

I've been watching a lot of hockey lately (have I mentioned that I love NASN?) and I've noticed a lot of changes since I was last able to overdose on hockey, which was the spring of 1991. The biggest change is that there are far fewer goals. When I was watching hockey regularly, 5-3 games were the norm, but now it seems as if the team that scores 2, wins. Last night was another 1-0, sudden death OT game (which I only saw this evening).

So, all you hockey fans out there, what gives? I have a lot of ideas, but seeing as they're based on 40 or fewer games, I'm not sure that they're valid. Am I right? Are the games more low-scoring?
