Shootout Score:
WASHINGTON 5 @ FLORIDA 6  20 rounds 12/16/14  (Luongo-W, Holtby -L;  GDG: Nick Bjugstad)
NY RANGERS 4 @ WASHINGTON 3  15 rounds 11/26/05  (Lundqvist W, Kolzig-L; GDG: Marek Malik)
NY ISLANDERS 5 @ ANAHEIM 4  14 rounds 11/22/16 (Greiss-W, Bernier-L; GDG: Nick Leddy)

(All three were won by the team that shot last  -- "Skate-off win"?)
