Points in hockey?

NHL hockey incorporates two types of "points." First, in scoring, goals plus assists equal "points." Thus, a player who scores two goals and has three assists will leave the game with five "points." Secondly, the NHL determines its regular season division champions by an aggregate of "points": 2 points for a win, 1 point for a loss in overtime or a shootout, and 0 points for a loss in regulation. The team with the post "points" at season's end wins the division crown.

Did you get 2 points for scoring a goal?

Outside of some fantasy-league scoring systems and the NHL's recently-introduced "shoot-out" format, a goal has always been worth exactly one goal (and one point in the goal scorer's point total).
