Introduction and Hypothesis
Hypothesis:

If a team has more goals than the opposing team, then the teams winning ratio will be higher. Introduction: By looking at the stats of NHL hockey team this study is to look at the winning ratio and see if it is affected by the goals per game by a specific team. This topic is in interest to me because
I play hockey, I am a goalie so this topic is very cool because although most people would assume that the team with the more shot will win the game. But the correlation is not as strong as some people would have guessed.

Data Independent Variable is Shots on goal by team
Dependent variable Winning ratio
2013­2014
