The Coman Tiebreak Procedure What is it?The Coman Tiebreak Procedure is the same as the present tiebreak (set or match), except that ends are changed after the first point, then after every four points (i.e., after the 5th, 9th, 13th, 17th points, etc.), and at the conclusion of the tiebreak. The scoring in the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is the same as a traditional set or match tiebreak, and the procedure for playing the Coman Tiebreak is the same as a set or match tiebreak. For example, if the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is used when the set score is 6-6, the player whose turn it is to serve shall serve the first point from the deuce court; after the first point, the players shall change ends and the following two points shall be served by the opponent(s) (in doubles, the player of the opposing team due to serve next), starting with the ad court; after this, each player/team shall serve alternately for two consecutive points (starting with the ad court), changing ends after every four points, until the end of the tiebreak game.When will it be used?USTA will use the Coman Tiebreak Procedure at all USTA League Region and Section Championships for all set and match tie breaks. Use of the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is encouraged during local league play.Principal Advantages1. Fairness - By changing ends more frequently, the effects of the elements (sun, wind, etc.) are distributed more evenly between the two opponents as opposed to playing six consecutive points before changing ends.2. In doubles, the server will always serve from the same end of the court, rather than having to serve from both ends.

How is a tie break in the NHL regular season standings determined?

1. The first tiebreak after points is regulation or overtime wins (ROW). So shootout wins do not count towards this tiebreak. 2. If they are still tied, next is whoever has the best points % in the games played between the tied teams. 3. If that is also equal, it goes down to the greater differential in goals for and goals against for the regular season.
