NHL Confirms Rule Change

According to EJ Hradek of ESPN:
NHL confirms this rule change: Regulation/OT wins (shootout Ws EXCLUDED) now will be first way to break ties in the standings.
Columbus GM Scott Howson had proposed this tie-breaker rule change/adjustment at the GM Meetings in March.
Assuming that this will mean we'll be looking at a new standings format come October. Another column!
