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.
Nice fights to end the game St Louis. And you wonder why the league gives you no credit or respect Joel Quinville! Although, how can you blame them, Tyson Nash got 30 stitches for a slash to the mouth and no penalty was called.
