Luxbet.com gives hockey fans great betting options when it comes to the National Hockey League, or the NHL as it is commonly known. The NHL is the top league in the world when talking about professional ice hockey.

Ice hockey is played on a rink and during play, there are six players, including one goaltender, per side on the ice at any time. The objective of the game is to score goals by shooting a hard rubber puck into the opponent’s goal net, which is placed at the opposite end of the rink. The players may control the puck using a long stick with a blade that is commonly curved at one end. The team who scores the most goals at the end of three periods is declared the winner.

The NHL has thirty teams from both the United States and from Canada. The league is split into two conferences – East and West – and each conference is split into three divisions with five teams each. The regular season ends with the playoffs before culminating in the Stanley Cup.
