“It changes the dynamic a little bit in terms of these last few games,” Howson told Sporting News. “A team might be forced to pull their goalie in overtime because a shootout win won’t be good for them."

...and the funniest thing is that if you pull your goalie in OT and the other teams scores an ENG you lose the point you got from the tie.
