Consider the following;

Columbus plays Minnesota 7 times, Columbus wins 4 games in OT, Minnesota 3 in regulation;

if it's regular season games, Minnesota is deemed the winner due to 10 points to Columbus' 8.

So while you can use the argument (oh no team makes the playoffs with 72 losses), I can easily counter, a team is deemed the 'winner' of a season series despite winning fewer games than the opposition in such common games.
