What is tie-breaking procedure in NHL (regular season)?

1

The 2014–15 NHL season was the 98th season of operation (97th season of play) of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The Los Angeles Kings became the first team to miss the playoffs after winning the Stanley Cup the previous season since the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006–07.[1] The Boston Bruins also became the third defending Presidents' Trophy winner to miss the playoffs (and the first since the Buffalo Sabres missed the playoffs in 2007–08 after winning the Presidents' Trophy in 2007). The Winnipeg Jets clinched a playoff berth for the first time since the team's relocation from Atlanta in 2011.[2] The San Jose Sharks' playoff streak ended at ten years. The Ottawa Senators also became the first team in NHL history to make the post season after trailing for the final playoff spot by 14 points.

Since the 1995-96 season, each team in the NHL plays 82 regular season games, 41 each of home and road. In all, 1,230 games are scheduled (448 inter-conference games).

Since the 2013–2014 season, the NHL regular season formula was adjusted to account for the new conference alignments. Each team plays either four or five games against the other teams in its division (a total of 29 games in the Western Conference, 30 games in the Eastern Conference) as well as playing all non-divisional teams in their own conference three times (21 games in the west, 24 games in the east). The remaining games of the season are inter-conference play (32 in the west, 28 in the east), allowing every team in the league to play every other team twice. One Western Conference exception is that one team from each division plays one less game inside Division and one more game inside Conference but outside their Division. Teams rotate every season. The schedule is structured so that every NHL team plays...

The NHL regular season ends this Sunday, but much of what’s going to happen in the NHL post-season has yet to be determined. With each team still facing at least one regular season game, the Stanley Cup Playoff picture could change dramatically, making the final weekend of NHL regular season action a must-watch.

1. Two post-season berths are still up for grabs

The Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers are all in contention for the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference and are separated by only one point. The Red Wings and Bruins have one game remaining, while the Flyers have two. The playoff scenarios get pretty complicated, but Yahoo’s Puck Daddy has a good breakdown of the many ways these games could shake out. Here’s a simplified version:

The Red Wings can clinch a playoff spot with a win in regulation or overtime against the New York Rangers on Saturday. If they lose, they’ll need help from Boston and Philadelphia. The Bruins...

The Stanley Cup playoffs is an elimination tournament in the National Hockey League (NHL) consisting of four rounds of best-of-seven series.

Eight teams from each of the two conferences qualify for the playoffs based on regular season points totals.

The final round is commonly known as the Stanley Cup finals which sees the two conference champions play for the Stanley Cup.

The NHL has always used a playoff tournament to determine its champion.

Its playoff system has changed over the years from the league's inception in 1917 when ownership of the Stanley Cup was shared between different leagues to when the NHL took over the Cup in 1926 to the current setup today.

Current FormatEdit

The Stanley Cup playoffs consists of four rounds of best-of-seven series.

Each series is played in a 2–2–1–1–1 format, meaning the team with home-ice advantage hosts games 1, 2, 5 & 7 while their opponent hosts games 3, 4 & 6 with games 5–7 being played...

NHL tie-breaking procedure

If two or more clubs are tied in points at the end of the regular season, the standing of the clubs in each Conference will be determined in the following order:

a. The greater number of games won. Shootout wins are not included in the tie-breaking procedure.
b. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs.
c. The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.

Playoffs format

Best-of-7 format is used in all stage of playoffs. For the first three rounds, the higher-seeded team has home-ice advantage (regardless of point record). In the Stanley Cup Final, it goes to the team with the better regular season record. The team with home-ice advantage hosts Games 1, 2, 5 and 7, while the opponent hosts Games 3, 4 and...

What is tie-breaking procedure in NHL (regular season)?

How are standings for the teams in the NHL table decided. What is used as a secondary criterion, if the teams have the same number of points?

For example, with one match remaining for Detroit and Washington the positions of wild card teams in Eastern Conference are

| | GP | pts | diff 1 | Columbus | 82 | 93 | +15 2 | Detroit | 81 | 91 | -11 3 | Washington | 81 | 89 | -4

(GP = number of games played, pts = number of points, diff = goal difference)

I have seen in many sources that at this point the teams qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs are already decided and that Washington Capitals cannot qualify. But it is still possible that both Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings both finish at 91 points. (Capitals would have to win their last game, and Detroit would have to loose in regulation time.) Moreover, Washington would have better goal difference. So I wonder why they cannot...

If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:

1. The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).

2. The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout. This figure is reflected in the ROW column.

3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.

4. The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.

NOTE: In standings a victory in a shootout counts as one goal for, while a shootout loss counts as one...

NHL realignment and recent revisions to the tie-breaker system, discounting the value of a shootout win in determining regular season standings, have altered tiebreaker rules and playoff seeding.

First off, the top three teams in each division automatically qualify for the postseason with two wildcard spots being awarded to the next highest ranked teams in each conference. And yes, it is possible for both wildcard berths in a conference to come from the same division, meaning one division sends five teams to the playoffs while the other sends only three.

Total regular season points rules the day in ordering the top three teams in each division as well as wildcard winners. The division winner with the most points is then matched against the wildcard team with the fewest points in the conference, leaving the other division winner to play the remaining wildcard team, while the second and third place finishers in each division battle in the opening round of the...

The season structure of the National Hockey League (NHL) is divided into the regular season and the Stanley Cup playoffs. In the regular season, which generally runs from early October through early April, teams play 82 games which determine their standings. The three top-seeded teams in each division and two wild card teams per conference enter the playoff elimination tournament to determine the Stanley Cup champion.

Since the 1995-96 season, each team in the NHL plays 82 regular season games, 41 each of home and road. In all, 1,230 games are scheduled (448 inter-conference games).

The 2010–11 NHL season was the 94th season of operation (93rd season of play) of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final 4–3 to win the Stanley Cup. It was the sixth Cup win in Bruins' franchise history. For the fourth consecutive season, the season started with games in Europe. The 58th All-Star Game was held at the RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, home arena of the Carolina Hurricanes, on January 30, 2011.

This was the final season of operation for the Atlanta Thrashers, who were sold to True North Sports and Entertainment out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and moved from Atlanta to Winnipeg to become the Winnipeg Jets. Winnipeg previously had lost its NHL team, also called the Winnipeg Jets, after the 1995–96 NHL season to Phoenix, Arizona, and were renamed "Phoenix Coyotes." This was the second time the city of Atlanta, had lost an NHL franchise, previously losing the Atlanta Flames to Calgary, Alberta,...

While 20 of the League's best players were in New York for a preseason promotional tour, the NHL's Board of Governors gathered at a nearby hotel to approve a new tiebreaker system for the standings. Starting with the 2010-11 season, the tiebreaker among teams with the same total of points in the standings will go to the club with the most regulation and overtime wins -- no longer including shootout wins in the decision.

"All of our research indicates overwhelmingly that the fans do like the shootouts," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. "There has been an increase [in shootouts] in the last year, after consistent numbers in the four prior years, but one year does not an issue make."

Statistics prove out the Commissioner's point: From the 2005-06 season through 2008-09, games resulting in overtime ranged from 272 to 282 and shootouts ranged from 145 to 164. Last season, total overtime games totaled 301 and there were 184 shootouts.
