Shootouts can decide games
In the NHL, shootouts can only decide regular-season games; playoff games tied after regulation end in sudden-death overtime. Under IIHF regulations, Olympic hockey games that end regulation tied go to a 10-minute sudden death overtime after which, if the neither team has scored, the game goes to a decisive shootout, just as Sweden defeated Canada in a shootout to secure gold medals at the 1994 Winter Olympics.
