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.
Nope. Terrible idea. Wins in shootouts would then be equal to wins in regulation. Teams who were good at shootouts would just trap for 65 minutes and win in the shootout.
I'd do this: Wins in regulation/OT get two points, wins in shootouts get one, and losses get nothing.
