games like these I root for shootouts. Denies both teams a ROW.
Doesn't a row help them with tie breakers?
ROWs are first tiebreak. That game going to shootout means NYI could not match Pens current ROW total (even though Pens own head to head already, which is 2nd tiebreak), and WAS max ROW total would be Pens current, and Pens own the head to head. Reduces the clinch number over those teams by not needing the +1.
