What is the typical length of a Kings Hockey game from start to finish including timeouts and breaks?

Sixty minutes. A hockey game consists of three twenty-minute periods. If the score is tied at the end of the third period, the teams play a five-minute sudden-death overtime period. If neither teams score in the overtime, the game ends as a tie. In the playoffs, games cannot end in a tie. So instead of a five-minute overtime, a playoff game has an extra 20-minute sudden-death overtime period. If neither team scores, then there is another 20-minute overtime, and so on, until someone scores. There was a Detroit-Montreal game in 1956 that went to the sixth overtime, finally ending at 176 minutes 30 seconds--almost as long as three ordinary games! Detroit scored in the sixth overtime to win the game 1-0.

Who created hockey?

Nobody knows for certain, since hockey has been played for thousands of years, but here is input from several WikiAnswers contributors:

Hockey is a family of sports in which two teams play against each other by trying to maneuver a ball or a puck into the opponent's goal using a hockey stick.

This games was played with curved sticks and a ball can be found in the histories of many cultures. In Egypt, 4000-year-old carvings feature teams with sticks and a projectile, hurling dates to before 1272 BC in Ireland, and there is a depiction from c.600 BC in Ancient Greece. In Inner Mongolia, China, the Daur people have been playing beikou, a game similar to modern field hockey, for about 1,000 years.[

Most evidence of hockey-like games during the Middle Ages is found in legislation concerning sports and games. Similar to Edward's proclamation was the Galway Statute enacted in Ireland in 1527, which banned certain types of ball games, including hockey.

  • Drawings of hockey have been found in 4000-year-old tombs in Egypt
  • There are Greek statues of people playing hockey dating from around 500 BCE
  • Far-Eastern and South American cultures have played hockey for between 600 and 1000 years
  • Various rulers in the Middle Ages tried to ban some forms of "hockie"
  • Modern day hockey is attributed to being started in the early to mid 1800's in England

Ice Hockey

  • In the town of Windsor, Nova Scotia, considered one of the birthplaces of the game, a story has long circulated regarding a Colonel Hockey, stationed at the garrison on Fort Edward. The Colonel used the game to keep his troops conditioned, and the game soon adopted his name, as many referred to these workouts as "Hockey's Game." Though there is no official documentation backing either claim, timing lends credence to the Colonel's story. The British Army list, housed in the Library of Nova Scotia's General Assembly in Halifax, lists a John Hockey serving in the mid-1800s when the name of the game was adopted.

No one person really invented the game. People in Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario sort of started playing a game on ice that was a combination of lacrosse and Irish games like hurley and bandy.About 1897 , a Mr. J.G.A. Creighton, who was a student at McGill University and an avid player, codified and published the first set of hockey rules.

Why are hockey sticks made from wood?

== == Modern hockey sticks are made from several types of materials, including wood. Wood is the traditional material, and a wood stick is the cheapest one. Made in two parts, the shaft and the blade, and joined together at the point where the shaft meets the blade, with a type of joint that is quite strong. The blade's length is regulated, as is the curvature of it. Metal shafts and now combined with wood blades, as are composite sticks with blades and shafts. The cost of these is much higher than wood . A pro quality composite stick is about $125 each with metal shaft and wood sticks being cheaper at $99 in Canada. Pro hockey players have their sticks made just for them by the stick companies, and when they get a shipment of 100 sticks, they will spend several days, working on each stick to get it to their satisfaction as to the curve and the taping on the blade and the shaft. They use sanders and grinders to get them "just right" then they are stored in the team's equipment locker. The team's equipment manager is responsible to make sure that each player has "enough sticks" for every game and he puts at least 5 sticks out for each player behind the player's bench where they are instantly available if the player breaks on on the ice. The metal shaft stick has more bendability than the wood one, so the player can get more "whip" effect when he shoots. The amount of curve and cup of the blade will give the shooter more "snap" on the wrist shot. The downside to a big curve in the blade is that it makes it much harder for the player to "receive" a hard pass. The puck will bounce off the curved blade more easily than on a straight blade. It is all a matter of personal choice for the player. Finally goal tenders do not use composite or metal sticks, only wood ones. They have found that wood has the best weight and feel for the special sticks that the goals use. The goalie has a stick that is wider and thicker than a regular hockey stick.
