SECHC

When two SECHC teams play each other, the game is reported as a tie to the CHF if no one scores in the 4 on 4, 5 minute OT. But, if SECHC teams are playing each other, they can then use a 3-man shootout to determine a winner for SECHC standings only. SECHC standings use WINS and LOSSES only, no tie our OTL.
