The term 'Clutch Player' often refers to players who score the crucial goals of the game. We examine the statistics of players who scored important goals in the games and rated these goals as following:
GEG - Game Ending Goal. The decisive goal scored in OT. 2.5 points
GWG - Game Winning Goal that was the last to be scored. 1.5 points
LGWG - Late GWG - GWG scored in the last 3 minutes of the game. 2 points
GTG - Game Tying Goal. The last or the penultimate goal that tied the game. 1 points
LGTG - Late GTG - GTG scored in the last 3 minutes of the game. 1.5 points
However, our definition of a clutch GWG is different - it's an NHL Game Winning Goal, after which the opponent did not score!
