Oshawa at Kingston tonight.

This is the only game Oshawa might possibly lose this week. So after tonight, the Ice Dogs will know if they need to win one or two games for home ice advantage.

Why don't our Boys make it easy on themselves and show up in the first periods and win all three remaining games.

Well, if they did that - the Ice Dogs would finish the season with 80 points (= 40 wins).

Not totally correct with your statement above.

It our boys run the table, that would be 35 wins and 80 points.
Take away the 10 loser points and they would only haves 70 points.

I have never been able to figure out how 80 points this season (if it happens) equates to 40 wins. LOL

2 x 40 = 80

(35 x 2) + 10 = 80

It's irrelevant anyways - the Ice Dogs are not going to beat Hamilton on Thursday! Best case scenario for the Ice Dogs is 78 points.

This notion of “loser points” is not referenced accurately.

When you play 60 minutes of traditional hockey and the game is tied you have earned a point. Playing a gimmick game of 3 on 3 (or using the Shootout) might add entertainment, but it certainly does not add integrity to the game.

If you are going to attach a loss to a team’s Win/Loss record, then you have to play the OT in the same manner that the game itself was played.

I have seen many Rec Tournament – in various sports – use correctly the term “loser points”. In that point system the game ends with: 3-W, 2-T and 1-L. That properly defines a “loser point”.

I have a better and older way of doing things.

Get rid of the overtime, shoot-outs and all of those so-called loser points.

2 points for a win.
0 points for a loss.
1 point to each for a tie game.

Done deal and I am all in.. Oh. how we long for the good old days.... LOL again
