Award Points For Goals Per Game

Award points to players for scoring multiple goals in a game.
Award points to goalies/teams for only allowing a certain number of goals against in a game.

For example, you might award;
2 extra points for scoring 4 goals in a game
1 extra point for allowing only 1 or 2 goals in a game
-2 (subtract) points for allowing more than 4 goals in a game

Some Potential Confusing Point Issues

- The NHL rule is that Goalies are not awarded a ShutOut if another goalie plays, even for 1 second.
- If you disagree, we provide 0 Goal Against Games: a 0GAG stat is awarded if a goalie plays any amount of time without allowing a goal.
- We do not recommend you use 0GAG: like the NHL, we don't think a goalie who plays less than a full game should get extra points.
- If you do use 0GAG, we recommend that you set a minimum number of minutes a goalie must play before their stats count. Even this way however, if you have a 50 minute time-limit before points count for a goalie, they may have come in after the starter let in 4 goals in the first 10, and thus would get 0GAG points in a game where 4 goals were scored against the team.
- Goalies get both a ShutOut and a 0 Goals Against Game stat if they play a full, 0 goal game. For this reason, you should choose to award points for only one or the other, not both.

Both Goalies Get ShutOuts in 0-0 Shootout Game:
- NHL rules are that Shootout goals do not count against a goalie, and in the case of a 0-0 game that goes into a Shootout, both goalies played full minutes without allowing a goal, thus both get ShutOuts.
- Only one gets the win though, for extra points. If you don't like the NHL's rule, you can award negative bonus points to those goalies.
- Note that this is NOT true for Goaltending teams; the ShutOut will only be given to the winning team, so that's another alternative to any points issue surrounding this scoring.

- A 3 Goal Game (3GG) is different from a HatTrick (HT):
- A 3GG is awarded if the player gets EXACTLY 3 goals.
- A HT is awarded if a player gets 3 OR MORE goals. It is a subtle difference, so choose the one that works best for your pool.
- Players get both a HatTrick and 3 Goal Game if they score exactly 3 goals. For this reason, you should choose to award points for only one or the other, not both.
