What is Ice Hockey
Ice hockey is a team sport played on ice in which skaters use sticks to shoot a hard rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points. In some countries, such as Canada and the United States, it is known as hockey. The name ice hockey is used in countries where the hockey term generally refers to field hockey. A team usually consists of four lines of three forwards, three pairs of defensemen, and two goalies. Five members of each team skate up and down the ice trying to take the puck and score a goal against the opposing team. Each team has a goaltender who tries to stop the puck from going into the goal.
What is Power Play in Ice Hockey
Power play is a sporting term used in many various games. In ice hockey, a team is said to be on a power play when at least one opposing player is serving a penalty, and the team has a numerical advantage on the ice (whenever both teams have the same number of players on the ice, there is no power play). Up to two players per side may serve in the penalty box, giving a team up to a possible 5 on 3 power play. If a goaltender commits a foul, another player who was on the ice at the time of the penalty serves. A power play resulting from a simple minor penalty ends if the team with more players on the ice scores If a player is given a major penalty (five minute duration), a power play occurs, but if the opposite team scores, the penalty is not ended. Major penalties only end when five minutes have elapsed or the game has ended. If a team is still on a power play at the end of a regulation period, or at the end of a playoff overtime period, the power play will continue into the following period. Penalties for misconduct do not result in power plays. A goal scored by the short handed team during a power play is called a short handed goal. If a power play ends without a goal against the shorthanded team, it is said to have killed the penalty. If a team scores on the power play, it is said to have converted the power play (that is, converted the opportunity into a goal). During a power play, the shorthanded team may launch the puck to the opposite end of the rink, and play will continue; icing is not called.
