The defending team can just keep trying to blast a 200-footer at the empty net because they don't have to worry about icing the puck.

Pretty risky strategy, and I can't really see a scenario where it would ever make sense in OT. I can understand maybe if it's at the end of regulation and the game is tied, and you need to not only beat the other team, but also keep them from getting any points in the standings. In that case it's sort of an all-or-nothing gamble and can be used as a risky desperation tactic at the end of the 3rd, but it doesn't make sense in OT as far as I can tell.
