Hockey Question!

I have a question. I decided to post it here as Habs board seems to most users on with hockey knowledge..I tried to pose it as best I could. I am sorry if it seems unclear. It's similar to the Carolina/Washington/Florida scenario last season.

Here is the scenario:

Team A and Team B are fighting for the final 8th spot. Team A is leading Team B by a single point and Team A also has more wins.

Both teams play each other in the final game of the season. Team B must win in regulation in order to make the playoffs. If the game were to go into overtime and Team A loses, they would still go to the playoffs regardless. Although both teams would have the same number of points (assuming Team B wins in OT), but Team A has more wins.

During the game, the clock is in the waning seconds of the 3rd period. The score is tied at 0-0. A player from Team B has a clear breakaway and is hauled down by a player from Team A. The infraction is clearly penalty shot worthy. Now suppose this action occurred with two seconds remaining, but the whistle was not blown until the exact moment the clock struck 0:00.

Now, is the player from Team B awarded the penalty shot even with no time remaining on the clock? Or is the game carried over into overtime thus putting Team A in playoffs by default?

Thanks!

PS takes place before the OT starts... if he scores on the PS its a regulation win.

You should have a warning on this thread for us guys with hangovers.


im sure the refs would get together and since it did occur with time on the clock they would reward the team with a penalty shot

the clock doesn't move whilst a penalty shot is taken therefore even with no seconds on the clock the player has time to take a penalty shot before OT.

The penalty shot goal if successful, would put team B into the playoffs.

Think of it this way. When the period ends and there is a delayed penalty, or even a penalty given out after the end of a period... It counts on the scoresheet as at 20:00 of that period, not 0:00 of the next.

Thus, the PS would be awarded at 20:00 of the third and if he scored, his team would win in regulation and advance to the playoffs.
