Best Answer

Ice Hockey is a game played on a 200 x 85 ft dimension ice with five players (six including the goalie) on each team. Players must skate across the ice with the puck on their stick in attempt to score a goal. By the end of the game (three periods in varying amounts of time depending on the league), the team with the most points wins.
