Rules

At the 2007 IIHF World Championships, a three-point system for each game is used. Teams winning in regulation were awarded three points, the loser none. Where there was a tie score in the Preliminary, Playoff and Relegation Rounds, teams were given one point each. A five-minute overtime followed and, if the score was still tied after overtime, Game Winning Shots was used. The team winning in overtime or shoot-out was awarded the extra point for a total of two points.
