It's a fact that the losing team gets a point. You can't even debate that.
Sure I can.
There's over 100 years of precedent demonstrating that in the event of a tie both teams receive a point.
Starting a few seasons ago they started awarding bonus points for teams that win the ridiculous "4 on 4" exhibition game that follows 60 minutes of regulation hockey. Now they've added an additional round of exhibition to help decide who receives the bonus point.
To suggest that a team that "loses" the shootout somehow "lost" the hockey game is absurd. Hell they awarded Bernier a shutout for a game he allegedly lost according to you.
How could a goalie possibly LOSE a game in which he allowed zero goals?
