Want to Win in the NHL? Score First -- but not until the Third

The team that scores first has an advantage in a National Hockey League game. That should be obvious: They are, at that point, winning.

The extent of that advantage, however, depends on when the goal is scored. If it comes at any point in the first two periods of a game, the probability that the team scoring first will win is 66.7 percent, said Samantha Key, a mathematics major at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

“You don't have to rush it,” said Key, a senior from Freeport. “Time isn't really a factor until the third period.”
