From the Vancouver/Boston game I mentioned earlier in the thread:
3:54 Thornton, Lucic - Kesler scored 5-on-3, Bruins killed the remaining 5-on-4 time
16:26 Peverley - killed
18:45 Pouliot - killed
34:47 Seguin - Burrows PPG
36:43 Krejci - killed
38:47 Marchand major - H. Sedin and Hodgson scored PPGs. D. Sedin served a two-minute minor during this time and stepped back on the ice with Marchand still serving his major.
53:22 Horton - killed
Vancouver was credited with 11 power play opportunities for the game:
- 7 minor penalties taken by the Bruins
- 4 opportunities for the five minute major:
a) one opportunity for the first minute until Henrik's goal
b) one opportunity for the time between Henrik and Hodgson's goals
c) one opportunity for the time between Hodgson's goal and Daniel's penalty
d) one opportunity for the 16 seconds of power play time the Canucks had after Daniel finished serving his penalty
Pre 1956-57 complete two minute minors had to be served regardless of the number of goals scored against the penalized team.
No official PP stats were kept but in media reports teams would be described as scoring multiple goals during 1 PP.
Do the same procedures apply to defining SH goals and opportunities? It is possible for a penalized team to score multiple SH goals in two minutes. A SH goal also splits the PP opportunity into two segments.
