Pens never had the lead until the last shot/last second. Huge 2 points.

The Pens were much better defensively tonight. Happy for Jarry because those were fluky goals that went in against him.

Right....both Isles goals, wicked flukes. Penguins were dominating this game, especially 1st period.

Penguins 37-29.

Flyers 34-31.

Yet the Flyers are ahead in the standings.

GET RID OF THE GODDAM EXTRA POINT FOR OT GAMES!

IT’S MORONIC NOW THAT GAMES CAN’T END IN A TIE!

I'm not going to say it was ONLY benching Hunwick, but without him the pairings and defensive play on the back end was a lot better/cleaner. Ruh played very well, I thought.

It's fine... just award 3 points for a regulation win.

118 for Washington, 115 for the Pens, 113 for Philly. Better representation for the results.

Anything that gets rid of the extra point being created out of thin air just because the game went into OT.

Although the Caps are 37-28 and the Pens are 37-29...under your method that translates out to the Caps being three points better (one extra win). I suppose that’s OK if you look at it from a loss column perspective, but I’d rather cut out the counting points crap to begin with and just go by standings.

Although- if the Caps were then to lose another game, both they and the Pens would be 37-29...and the Caps would STILL be three points ahead.

I don’t believe a team should get credit for just making the game go to OT. A win is a win.

I don't know shit about hockey, but....I'm okay with the current system of awarding a point for a overtime loss, but honestly, can't clearly explain my thought process.

I think it has to do with the tie game being so much more a part of hockey than any other major sport, and the rules put in place to eliminate ties, particularly the shootout, but even 4-on-4, and now 3-on-3, are such a departure from the game that's played for 60 minutes.

My being okay with it then...and I'm typing as I'm thinking, always a dangerous practice, is that a team played for a tie during that 60 minute time frame where hockey is played as it was intended. I do know that watching the Penguins every game this season on nhl TV, I always take some comfort when a game is winding down its final seconds tied, know that the Pens will come out with a point. Granted, I'm not thinking about the Flyers or Caps accumulating that point more often than the Pens.

Did a little research....always assumed that regular season OT was a relatively new development, coming into play in '83, then shootouts added in '05. However, OT existed until '42 when it was suspended due to restrictions on train scheduling during wartime.

Also, just now noticing that Cryers are 2-6 in shootouts and NHL clearly treats shootout wins/losses differently than regulation or overtime.
