How are points awarded in hockey?

When you look at the NHL standings in the newspaper or online, you will see columns for W (wins), L (losses), and OL (overtime losses). A team gets 2 points for each win, 0 points for each loss, and 1 point for each overtime loss. To determine how many points a team has, multiply the number of wins by 2 and add to the number of overtime losses. Example: An NHL team's record is 40-30-8 (40 wins, 30 losses, 8 overtime losses). Multiply the number of wins (40) by 2 which gives you 80, then add that to the number of overtime losses (8). An NHL team with a record of 40-30-8 has 88 points.
