To succeed in betting on hockey, just like in any other sport, the object is to beat the closing line. I beat the closing line in with Flyers-Caps game today by something like 25 points. I still lost, but the loss matters way less than the fact that I successfully beat the close. How often you beat the close is more important than wins and loses on a sample size like this short season.
Also for what it's worth, I'm finding tremendous value in live lines right now. Perhaps the most in the sport.
Obviously the goal is to beat the closer, but that's a redundant statement. It's like saying the object of playing a hockey game is to win the game. With the knowledge that you need to win the game, it's not like you are any better equipped to actually accomplish just that.
