As is, the team originating the 6 on 5 situation does so in a fashion to optimize benefits while minimizing risks. NHL teams allow < 30 SOG per game or < 1 every 2 minutes. Giving up an empty net goals requires 1 SOG by the defending team so the offensive team wishes to minimize its risk when playing its 6 best offensive players.
How are average shots per minute relevant here? On 6-5 situations the defending team's shot rate goes down significantly.
