Some leagues in their play-off stages use two-leg games. That means in series only two games (home and away) are played and aggregate score after the second game 4th period finishes is calculated. Overtime is played only when aggregate score is tied.


 That means scout may run into two uncommon situations after the second game 4th period finishes:

  1. 2nd game 4th period finished with tied score (for example, 75:75), but aggregate score is not tied (167:159). The winner is decided on aggregate score and thus there is no need to play overtime.
  2. 2nd game 4th period finished with not tied score (69:72), but aggregate score is tied (124:124). The winner is not decided on aggregate score and thus overtime should be played.
