In this situation not only did you give a division rival a point but you also are still behind them in the standings. If you would have beat them outright you would have been tied in the standings, possibly even ahead based on the tiebreaker.
Yeah but every time conference rivals go to OT I'm being hurt. with the 3-point-win I have complete control over my own destiny, as it should be.

What if 2 other conference rivals are playing each other, and we are playing a team from the other conference? If their game goes to OT, and I win in regulation, even the losing rival only falls back 1 point!! And I won in regulation!! How is that fair?

Every game should have the same value: 3points up for grabs
