DETROIT (AP) -NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said every team in the league will play all the others at least once next season.
The announcement came Saturday before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals between Pittsburgh and Detroit, two teams that did not meet this regular season.
Bettman also used his annual pre-Cup news conference to say the size of goaltenders' equipment will be analyzed in the offseason.
The commissioner said he hopes changes can be made, but the issue first must make its way through a committee process.
Bettman wants goaltenders to be on equal footing. He says scoring is down, goalies are bigger both physically and with the equipment they wear, and he wants more room for skaters to shoot on net.
