Notes[edit]

  • a Beginning with the 1999–2000 season, teams received one point for losing a regular season game in overtime.[2]
  • b Before the 2005–06 season, the NHL instituted a penalty shootout for regular season games that remained tied after a five-minute overtime period, which prevented ties.[3]
