Originally posted by odessasteps only for even strength goals.
+/- not affected by pp or sh goals.
if the assist is on a PPG and the opponent's goal was at even strength, it would make sense.
In fact, the plus/minus IS affected by shorthanded goals.
+/- Plus-minus rating A skater gets a +1 if he is on the ice when his team scores an even-strength or shorthanded goal. He gets a -1 if he is on the ice when his team allows an even-strength or shorthanded goal. This does not apply to goalies.
Where is ESPN even going to fit playoff hockey games? They turn the whole network over to NBA playoffs in April and May now. At least Versus shuts down all its programming every night. Best case would probably be for them to each show some games.
