Go back to two possible outcomes: A win, and a loss, period.

You get two points for a victory. You receive no points for a loss, regardless of when the winning goal was scored. Simple.
I'd actually want them to follow soccer and award 3 points for a regulation win. 2 or 3 points for an OT win, and 1 point to the loser.
2 points for a shoot out win and 1 point to the loser.

Losing in a shoot out and getting nothing would be freaking brutal. It is a bit of a gimmick, I'm not ready for it to take on an even more significant role in deciding points and final standings.
