If two teams have the same number of points, the NHL uses the following steps to break the tie:
(1) The winner is the team with more regular season wins. If there is still a tie, (2) the team that recorded more wins against each other (head to head record) will be proclaimed the winner. If their head to head records are identical, then (3) the team with the better goal differential is the winner. In the rare chance that there is still a tie, (4) the winner is determined by a good old-fashioned coin toss.
