It basically gives teams 2/3 of a win for extra time victories and teams 1/3 of a win for losing in extra time. Teams need to be penalized in some sort of way for not winning in regulation and for giving their opponents a point. 2 identical records yet one is above .500 and one is below.
That might be adjusted win percentage, but it is NOT point percentage. Point percentage is points/games, and points are well defined by the NHL
