More about Team Goals Per Game

Scoring in the NHL has changed over the years.  Goals were a plenty in the 1980s when the likes of Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux consistently put up 50+ goals per season.  Then coach Jacques Lemaire re-introduced the neutral zone trap and started a trend across the league that pulled in the reins of high scoring. Since 1990 the highest goals per game average in the NHL was 1992 with 3.6 goals per game.
