It counts as a loss. However, in the NHL, a team that loses in overtime or the shootout gets 1 point in the standings. The team that wins always gets 2 points. Regulation losses earn 0 points.

In the NHL, two (2) points are awarded for a win, and one (1) point is awarded for an overtime or shoot-out loss, during regular season play.

When you look at the NHL standings in the newspaper or online, you will see columns for W (wins), L (losses), and OL (overtime losses). A team gets 2 points for each win, 0 points for each loss, and 1 point for each overtime loss. To determine how many points a team has, multiply the number of wins by 2 and add to the number of overtime losses. Example: An NHL team's record is 40-30-8 (40 wins, 30 losses, 8 overtime losses). Multiply the number of wins (40) by 2 which gives you 80, then add that to the number of overtime losses (8). An NHL team with a record of 40-30-8 has 88 points.

Example: 52-21-5-109.52 is the number of wins, 20 is the number of losses, 5 is the number of overtime losses, and 109 is the number of points that team has accumulated that season.For an overtime loss that team receives 1 point which is why the 3rd number is listed in the stat.The fourth number (Points) may or may not always be listed.
