How are shorter power-plays counted in power play percentage?


One of the team statics in ice-hockey is power play percentage. From example, you can see it here for the currently played World Chapmionship or here for this year's NHL season.

I understand that this should be something like ratio of power play goals and total number power plays. I wonder whether in some cases the fact that the power play is shorter than 2 minutes is factored in when calculating PP%.

There are several reasons why power play might be shorter, here are some I can think of:

The power play ended because a team scored a goal. The power play was shorter because a team playing power power received a penalty. The power play was shorter because the penalty of the opposing team was called while playing shorthanded, which means that there was 4 on 4 play before the power play stared. The power play was shorter because it started less than two minutes until the end of the game.

In the first case, this was a successful power play - so there is no doubt...

Donald Trump appeared on The Tonight Show and wasn’t asked a single substantive question in 10 minutes.

The Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, went on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday. Here, in chronological order, is every question Fallon asked his guest.

—This is getting real. You still have time, do you still want to do this?

—There's kids watching at home right now ... Why should they want to grow up and be president?

—Did you always see yourself getting into politics?

Thinkpad T420s 4173PZ8, with ssd and with additional 4GB of RAM (8GB total) running Win 10 Build 10162. Laptop is 4 years old (and to be honest with this class of hardware it is like new).

Let's talk about this topic first - no, the custom PowerManager dont't work.

After installing PowerManagement driver from win 8.1 and Lenovo Settings Dependency Package from win 8.1 (there are no win 10 versions of this drivers/programs) you can theoretically set the battery charge level tresholds, but battery is charged to 100% (or to percentage value set in PowerManager in win 7) regardless of values set in this win 8.1 custom PowerManager.

Some people might be interested what about overall driver support on this model etc.

Win 10 works on my T420s with SSD insanely fast., but some hardware don't want to work regardless of insalled drivers (well, I can understand it, at this moment everything is in beta stage).

What is not working?

Beginning in October, 2015, Powerball® became an even larger combined large jackpot game and cash game. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time, we draw five white balls out of a drum with 69 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 26 red balls. This change means bigger jackpots. It also means that your odds of winning some prize are improved.

The jackpot - won by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball - is either an annuitized prize paid out over 29 years (30 payments counting the first immediate payment) or a cash lump sum payment. If you choose the cash, then you get the cash, pay the tax, and can invest what is left over. If you choose the annuity, then we can invest the cash amount pre-tax, less an immediate first payment (more to invest means more earnings). With the annuity, you get an annual payment that is increased by 5% each year to keep up with the cost of living.

The second prize - won by...
