** 3-player shootout if still tied after "mini-game 3" to determine the winner of the series
** If the series is tied 1-1 after OT or shootout of Gm2, we go to a "mini-game 3" or 
immediately to 3-player shoot-out to determine winner, time permitting
** If a game ends in a tie during the medal/classification rounds, there will be a 4v4
sudden-death overtime (changes on the fly only), 
followed by a 3 player shootout (teams can repeat shooters once 1 team's roster has cycled through)
