Shootouts and the stats

Not looking for yay or nay opinions on the shootout but I do have some questions because I have heard a few different answers on the shootout, boxscores, and stats.

Ottawa-Toronto Ocober 5th will be my example.

I looked at various websites, TSN, NHL.com, Fox, ESPN, ect. and the various boxscore reports for the OTT-TOR game differed. Some included the shootout while others did not.

I had heard on Leafs Lunch that the scorer of the game-winner in the shootout will be the only one credited with a goal for his personal stats. Only NHL.com credited Alfredsson with his third goal, the others all have Alfredsson at 2 goals. Anyone know anything about this? Also, if Alfredsson is credited with the shootout goal, does he get credited with the first hat trick of the season?

There is also a debate out there where Heatley should get the goal since it was his that 'clinched' the shootout for Ottawa even though, by definition, Alfredsson's was the game-winner.
