Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Extra Point

from Bob McKenzie (the by-line says AP) of TSN,
As the playoff races get down to the nitty gritty, there is a sense that the three-point game, or the point for losing in overtime or a shootout, is wreaking havoc on the NHL standings on a nightly basis. Well, as much as it may seem like that some days, the cold, hard numbers suggest otherwise. If you adjust the current NHL standings - that is, going into Wednesday's game - to eliminate all points earned by teams in overtime or shootout losses, the impact of the loser point is really quite minimal.
