The Math Of The Game "Hockey is one of the fastest, roughest games out there. Players fly around the arena, gliding on skates. They collide in the middle of the ice and smash each other into the boards. All while chasing a small, zigzagging puck while trying to shoot it into the other team's goal,"(4). Ice hockey is played on a sheet of ice. This sheet of ice is 17,000 sq. feet, with 1,417 cubic feet of ice. An ice hockey game consists of three twenty-minute periods. The team with the most goals after this time wins. If both teams have the same amount of goals, there will be a five-minute overtime period(in regular season; if in playoffs, there will be continuous 20 minute overtime periods until one of the teams score). If no goals are scored(in a regular season) overtime period, there will be a shoot out. It starts with each team having three shooters. Whoever scores the most out of three wins. I f it is still tied, it will go into sudden death. HOCKEY Goals and assist are added together to find a players point totals. Whoever has the most total points is the NHL scoring champion. The 2012-2013 scoring champion was Martin St.Louis* http://espn.go.com/nhl/statistics/player/_/stat/points/sort/points/seasontype/2 "When a player commits a penalty, he is to sit in the penalty box for at least two minutes or until the other team scores,"(20). Minor penalties are tripping, hooking, slashing, interference, high sticking(no blood: 2 minutes; blood: 4 minutes), delay of game, roughing, slew-footing, kneeing, kicking, checking from behind, clipping, elbowing, head-butting, throwing equipment, illegal checking to the head, butt-ending, cross-checking, holding, diving, too many men on the ice, and goalie interference.** Major penalties include fighting, charging, boarding, and spearing.** NHL Player Point Statistics-2012-2013. Professional hockey games are 60 minutes long. but did you know that most skaters play only 15 minutes? That's less than a period! Teams play in shifts, with groups of three forwards (called lines) and pairs of defense men regularly changing on the fly (10).*** "Each shift lasts roughly 45 seconds, and all players go all out during that time, making the most of their shift," (10).*** Works Cited The team who doesn't commit the penalty (unless already shorthanded) will go on a power play.
The team who commits the penalty will be shorthanded and be on the penalty kill. Plus-minus marks the number of goals scored for a player's team and the opponent while a certain player was on the ice. It's a good way to gauge players who are more defensive-minded. The Slap Shot "The slap shot is one of the most exiting plays in hockey. It's when a player has enough time and space to fire a powerful shot towards the net at speeds that can reach over 100 mph.Over time, slap shots have become harder, thanks to lighter sticks and bigger, stronger players,"(24).
