  1. The greater number of games won (not including games won in a shootout)
  2. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs.

If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
  3. Goal differential
