More Hockey Teams Are Playing for the Tie

But teams have simply stopped scoring tie-breaking goals in the last three minutes of the game: the scoring rate has dropped to roughly 2 goals per 60, less than half what it was over the last four seasons. Scoring rates have dropped in OT, too, perhaps reflecting a preference for the shootout, but the biggest change is simply the number of games that go to OT in the first place. Whether any team will admit it, they've started to take advantage of the extra points available to them if they play for the tie.
