In the National Hockey League, a team is awarded a single point in the standings when losing the game in overtime or in a shootout (they receive 0 points if they lose in regulation time) while the winning team is awarded 2 points. This single point is sometimes referred to as the "Leafs' Point" because it is the primary way that the Toronto Maple Leafs accumulate points in the standings due to their low number of regulation wins.
The Red Wings blew a 3 goal lead and lost to Edmonton in overtime, but at least they still picked up the Leafs' point.
