Least amount of shots in a game

At first I thought Patrick Roy's first game was a 2-shot shutout, but now I see he was only in for 20 minutes.

Whats the least amount of shots a team has put up?

I really have no idea but I once saw a game where one team only had 7 shots on goal. That was quite freakish but it wasnt in the NHL it was in the SEL

Toronto was held to 6 shots on goal once in the playoffs vs. New Jersey.

That's the lowest I can think of, and I believe is the record for a playoff game.

Hiller just faced 12 shots. I know it isn't the lowest ever so what was the lowest ever?

That 6-shot game as got to be up there in the expansion era at the very least...I came across this and might answer another trivia question: least shots by a winning team.

http://www.espn.go.com/nhl/boxscore?gameId=190304019

Toronto 4 - St. Louis 0
SOG: Tor 9

Jim Carey in net and taking the old "25% rule" in a different direction...

I remember watching the game, without a doubt the weirdest game I've ever seen.

Highest shooting % by one team in a game ever (.444)? Heck, I've seen NBA teams shoot lower than that. As I recall, three Leafs (Sundin) scored on their only shots of the game and Jim Carey performed well. It was Mr One Punch Power who struggled in net for the Blues!

Come on, a Dallas Stars writer should know the Sharks did that to the Stars earlier that season.

Came here to suggest that game. And while I don't know if it was the best ever, it was definitely my favorite from the 2000 playoffs.

Are you guys serously calling that a good or entertaining game? Or is it just a favourite because it was historic?

It was painful for me, and not just because the leafs were the victim... it was just a boring game.

The Leafs were my least favorite team in all of pro sports at that time (and they still might be now ). Watching them get eliminated from the playoffs in humiliating six-shot fashion on Saturday night on Hockey Night in Canada was...enjoyable, to say the least. The game degrading into a chippy affair with a couple of fights towards the end, including Brodeur gooning Tucker, was fun. Dejected Leaf homers Bob Cole and Harry Neale having to sit there and read the eulogy as the inevitable set in was merely the cherry on top of it all.

I am not sure of the regular season low, but the Flyers held the Capitals to seven shots in a game played in 1978.

for records of futility or all around crappiness, the 1970s Capitals should be excluded.

I don't mean to nitpick, but when I read that you said it was a Saturday, I just had to check, because I was dead sure it was a weekday... I was right, it was a Monday.

funny note about that game - only 4 Leafs had a shot. Berezin, of course, had three himself.

I remember working that night and listening to the game on the radio.... it wasn't a good night

Believe it or not, I was at the edge of my seat the whole third period, rooting for the record to be broken.

I'm sure I'm not the only one.

What's the point of sports without humiliating the hated opposition? And there was no team I hated more at the time than the Leafs* - they were just full of players who were easy to hate and they had the most obnoxious fan base on the old ESPN boards I used to frequent. God, must have gotten about 10 accounts banned trolling during the aftermath.

And yes, I'm pretty sure I hated the Leafs more than any other team at that time. The Rangers sucked too much to hate and Flyers weren't as easy to hate without Lindros in the lineup regularly.

There was a game between Sweden & Russia back in the 90s at the WJC (I think it was their 0-0 tie in 1997) where neither team got a shot on goal during one of the periods

I could have sworn up and down that it was on a Saturday, but you're correct, it was Monday. I seem to remember the game as having more penalties towards the end as well, but HSP only shows Tucker and Elias for fighting. Game 5 however, does show significant evidence of rough stuff at the end, and it was on a Saturday. I guess over the years my mind has combined the two games into one.

Was googling what the record was since the Winnipeg Jets had 2 shots through the first half of the game tonight and this thread came up so I guess I'll bump it.

The worst part of that Leafs-Devils playoff game was that it was clear that the Leafs had at least twice the number of shots that they were credited with.

I remember watching it a few times just to make sure and at bare minimum the Leafs had 13 or 14 shots. Still a pitiful total for a playoff elimination game, but a lot better than six.

Then again, the Devils always seemed to under-count shots. I firmly believe it's a major reason why Brodeur's career save percentage totals always seemed somewhat low compared to his reputation.
