True.

I agree any tie breaking goal is big.

Any stat that helps us filter away the 3-0 or 4-0 goals in games that finish 5-2 or 5-3 will help us more accurately determine, which players consistently tend to perform in close games when we need guys who can make the difference when the pressure is on and the open ice is usually at more of a premium.
