Power play

(Sport: Ice Hockey)

Definition

This occurs when a team has the advantage of more players on the ice than the opposition, as a result of penalties being assessed. During this timed advantage, the full-strength team will attempt to control the puck in the opposition's zone in order to create goal-scoring opportunities. A power play ends when the penalty expires or the penalized team allows a goal.
