So far in the 2008 Stanley Cup playoffs, the team scoring the first goal of the game has a record of 24-6, or a winning percentage of .800
Obviously scoring the first goal of the game is a huge advantage. With five games on the NHL playoff schedule tonight, watch every team to have an early push to score a goal.
Perhaps teams may want to bring Don Kozak out of retirement. On this date back in 1977, the Los Angeles Kings forward scored the fastest goal from the start of an NHL playoff game, tallying just six seconds into his club’s 7-4 win over the Boston Bruins in Game Four of their Quarter-final series.
