NHL Game Scoring is weird

I just don’t get the NHL game scoring that determines the standings.

You get two points for a win in regulation. But if game goes to overtime, each team gets a point and the winner then gets another point.

This makes it a three point game.

Why not make every game a three point game. It puts more emphasis on winning in regulation.

It just makes sense. I guess it’s why they don’t do it.
