Your real question should be directed towards the league you play in. If it's a 2-game series that features an overtime period if both teams win one game, that overtime period should have nothing carrying over from Game 2. That means you start overtime at 0-0 with no penalties on the clock. It's basically a new game, just with sudden death rules.

All situations aside, as a ref, I would definitely assess the Unsportsmanlike minor. You're trying to wipe out a penalty by scoring on yourself. I shouldn't have to tell you why intentionally putting the puck into your own net is bad for the game. Doing so in order to cancel a penalty your team took, frankly, insults the referee. It's not strategy, it's stupidity.
