For Commonwealth Coast Conference games ONLY: if the game is tied after 60 minutes of play, a five-minute, five-on-five overtime will be played. If there is no winner, the game is officially ruled as a tie. However, for conference standing purposes, teams will play a five-minute, three-on-three overtime period. If the game remains tied, a sudden death shootout will take place. Under this format, teams will receive the following point values:
- Regulation win: three points
- Overtime or shootout win: two points
- Overtime or shootout losses: one point
- Regulation loss: zero points
Statistics are only calculated during regulation and the first overtime period. No statistics (except for penalties which have a game misconduct or disqualification attached to them) in the three-on-three overtime period or the shootout are included in season/career totals.
