Another thrilling season of NHL hockey has wrapped up, with the playoffs looming on the horizon. This season was rich with remarkable performances and unforgettable moments, proving once again why hockey is one of the most exciting sports in the world. Here’s a quick numerical recap that highlights some of the most standout statistics from the 2013-14 regular season.

Despite netting 51 goals to lead the NHL, Alexander Ovechkin ended the season with a plus/minus rating of -35.

The New Jersey Devils failed to secure a win in all 13 of their shootout attempts.

Goalie Mike Smith scored a goal, joining the elite group of goaltenders who have scored in an NHL game. Remarkably, he scored with just a tenth of a second left on the clock.

The season saw four spectacular through-the-legs goals by Tomas Hertl, Thomas Vanek, Nathan Gerbe, and Marcus Foligno. It was an amazing season for NHL highlights.

A record was set with six outdoor games: the Winter Classic, the Heritage Classic, and four Stadium Series games.

The Buffalo Sabres dressed nine goaltenders throughout the season, a record for any team in a single season. The list includes Ryan Miller, Jhonas Enroth, Ryan Vinz, Jaroslav Halak, Michal Neuvirth, Nathan Lieuwen, Matt Hackett, Andrey Makarov, and Connor Knapp.

David Clarkson spent 12 games in the press box due to suspensions and tallied just 11 points, despite a hefty $5.25 million cap hit.

Nathan MacKinnon went on a 13-game point streak, breaking Wayne Gretzky’s record for the longest point streak by an 18-year-old.

The Colorado Avalanche dramatically turned their fortunes around, winning 52 games to finish third in the league after ranking 29th the previous season.

Ben Scrivens set a record for the most saves in a regular-season shutout with 59 saves against the Sharks in January. Keep that in mind the next time you play hockey trivia.

At the age of 42, Jaromir Jagr scored 67 points, continuing to defy the effects of age.

Sidney Crosby led the NHL with 104 points, the only player to surpass the 90-point mark this season.

Teemu Selanne, who announced his retirement after the playoffs, concluded his career with 1,457 points, ranking 15th on the all-time list.
