Well I wouldn't call it changing the rules, they are the rules that are already in place. When a team takes a couple quick penalties and we have 5 on 3 play, it's not "changing the rules" even though the on ice play has changed dramatically.
Regardless, what does that have to do with awarding a point? I mean the game is still tied, but there are still a few additional minutes of play specifically for this situation, that WILL result in a winner and a loser.
I just don't understand the sort of 'box' thinking where you must award a point after 60 minutes. I think if we were adopt a simple W-L system, it would be very short time before people stopped mourning the loss of the extra point.
