New Categories For OT

from the CP via the National Post,
Goalies are having to make do with smaller equipment and restrictions on where they can play the puck this season. But they have caught a break with the NHL's new standings format. For five seasons, starting with 1999-2000, goalies were tagged with a loss in their personal record whether it was a loss in regulation time or overtime. But the two were differentiated in the team standings, with a separate "OTL" section since overtime losses carried a point. Goalies didn't think that was fair.
