Scoring Is Way Up In The NHL And The Totals Prove It

Scoring is up in the NHL season. By a lot. 

How much? Already we’ve seen 69 OVER/UNDERs of six goals – which eclipses the number in any of the previous six seasons in their entirety. 

Holy puck. 

Goals are coming fast and furiously in the NHL this season to the tune of 6.14 goals per game. It’s early, but if that number holds it will be the most goals per game in the NHL since the 2005-06 season. 

Connor McDangle indeed. 

The OVER/UNDER record is 38-27-4 when the totals have been set at six goals this season so those games are worth noting. Their totals are set high for a reason.

Overall this year, the OVER/UNDER record is 127-97-7 in the NHL so it’s been an OVER year in general (56.7 percent). 

We’ll keep an eye to see if the trend continues but for now here’s a look at the top OVER teams in the league:
