Tailing the Komets

Blake, if the season ended today, would the Komets or Florida get the last playoff spot? They have 2 more actual wins then the Ks.

How does the ECHL break ties?

If Two Teams Tie

1. Wins, regular season (excluding shootout wins)
2. Points, head-to-head
3. Wins, head-to-head
4. Goal differential, head-to-head
5. Winning percentage, division (if tied teams are from same division; if not, skip to 6)
6. Winning percentage, conference
7. Goals for, regular season
8. Goals against, regular season
9. Coin toss

If Three or More Teams Tie
Note: When two teams remain after the third or other teams are eliminated during any step below, the tiebreaker reverts to Step 1 of the two-team format.

1. Wins, regular season (excluding shootout wins)
2. Winning percentage, games between the teams
3. Goal differential, games between the teams
4. Winning percentage, division
5. Winning percentage, conference
6. Goals for, regular season
7. Goals against, regular season
8. Coin toss

 Based on this, we have more regulation victories than Florida, so we would get the final playoff spot.

I can't get on the ECHL site today but scoreboard.com has Florida in 8th and Komets in 9th. Also they highlighted Florida as the playoff team and not us.  Still not sure.  Are overtime wins (not shootout) counted the same as a win not in overtime? If so, then Florida is ahead of us as far as I can tell.

I believe Florida holds tie-breaker but not 100% sure on that.

Komets hold the tie breaker or most non shootout wins...
