Question on how to read NHL Standings


Recommended Posts

Hey all, You guys probably answered this already, but, I have been baffled on how to read the NHL standings cause u couldn't tell about wins, losses, overtime losses, ties, how season points are rewarded, etc. So, I was wondering if anyone knew the new standings for the upcoming season.

According to what NHL.com has posted for preseason standings, there will be the following categories in the standings table:

? Games Played (GP)

? Wins (W) - 2 pts each

? Losses (L) - 0 pts each <-- meaning losses in regulation

? Overtime losses (OTL) - 1 pt each <-- meaning losses in overtime or in a shootout

? Goals For (GF)

? Goals Against (GA)

? Points (P)
