What is a no decision in hockey?

In hockey, there can be no tie. If there is a tie after regulation time, they go to a 5 minute overtime, and if it is still tied they go to a shootout until there is a winner. That is the regular season rule. However in the playoffs, there is no shootout but rather overtime until the tie is broken.
