Default AHL Tie Breakers

If the Manitoba Mooses and the Hamilton Bulldogs split their 2 games Apr. 8 and 9, 2011 in Winnipeg, who gets first place?

Easiest scenario -- If they each win in regulation once.

It would be Hamilton.

37 non-shootout wins to 35 for Manitoba.

Keep in mind that Lake Erie has a possibility of 98 points. Manitoba and Hamilton have a possible total of 97 if either wins out.

A three way tie could get trickier.


Following are the tiebreaking procedures used in the event of a tie in the standings following the completion of the regular season. When a tie among three or more teams is broken resulting in a two-team tie, the original tiebreaking method is used.

Between two teams:
a) wins (excluding shootouts)
b) points in season series between teams
c) goal differential
d) goals scored in season series between teams
e) intra-conference points percentage

Among three or more teams:
a) wins (excluding shootouts)
b) points percentage in combined season series
c) goal differential
d) goal differential in combined season series
e) intra-conference points percentage
