Is it a hockey goal or net? In ice hockey, a goal is scored when the puck entirely crosses the goal line between the two goal posts and below the goal crossbar. A goal awards one point to the team attacking the goal scored upon, regardless of which team the player who actually deflected the puck into the goal belongs to (see also own goal).
What size is a hockey net? To allow use in ice hockey games at all levels from amateur leagues to the NHL, this ice hockey goal is regulation size. The goal is 72in (1.8m) wide, 48in (1.2m) wide and 40in (1.1m) deep with a top shelf and supporting back bar.
What is the netting in hockey? The nets, installed to protect the fans sitting behind the goals in N.H.L. arenas, were mandated by the league in response to the death of 13-year-old Brittanie Cecil last March. Cecil was struck in the head by a puck during a game between the Calgary Flames and the host Columbus Blue Jackets.
