You lose an icing race for example if you have a starting lead over the opposing player and he eventually catches up to you in order to touch the puck first. However, the player icing the puck always gets a -1 if it does end up being an icing as you can see in the scoring system. Some situations, as I explained, still do not necessarily follow the exact system. For example I wouldn't subtract a point if a player is completely out of energy and at the end of his shift if he doesn't catch up to a bad icing play his teammate makes..
