This is called "blanking the end." In curling, whichever team scores gives the "hammer" (the advantage of having the last shot) to the other team for the next end. If no one scores ("blank end"), the team that has the hammer keeps it for the next end. If the team with the hammer has a choice of whether to score 1 point and give up the hammer, or blank the end and keep the hammer, they will usually purposely blank the end, carry the hammer to the next end, and to try to score more than one point in the next end.
