Your thoughts on this system

Been thinking about it for a while watching the games but figured I was in the minority. The other day listening to XM they were discussing the same thing. Do you think with the way the points scoring system is set up that teams are coasting at the end of the games to get the gauranteed 1 pt by making it to OT? I personally do. They were speaking of ways to change the scoring system to stimulate playing hard through the end of regulation. One of them I like so felt I would see how it affected the standings in our conference. This system rewards not only winning but moreover winning in regulation. Here is what it would shake out like: 3pts reg win, 2 pts OT W, 1 pt OT L(I highlighted teams that would change position Red=dropped Green= moved up) I think this system would work great because it rewards hard play through the end of the game and will make for more exciting hockey all around.
