Really though, having some games be worth more points is moronic. It basically encourages teams to play low scoring hockey since less goals means a greater chance of a tie at the end of regulation.
I say just take away the loser point. If a game goes to the shootout then each team gets accredited a tie and 1 point. Use the shootouts for the fans and as a tiebreaker at the end of the season.
