b)      Simultaneously, one player from each team will take one shot on the opposition’s goal.

c)      If the game is still tied after all three shooters have shot, then the process starts again with the same three shooters in the same order but in a sudden death format.  This will continue until a winner is determined.

d)      A five minute, 3 on 3, stop time period will take place only in the A, B, C and D final games.  If tied after the overtime, the above process (A, B and C) will determine the winner.
