New England Stars | 39% of Games Require Overtime
While some teams will finish the season without a single game requiring extra time, teams like the New England Stars play a large percent of their games in overtime. In fact, of the 38 games played by the Stars 15 were decided in overtime/shootout. This accounts for 39% of the teams overall games and nearly 4% of all Tier 3 overtime games. With 11 OT/SO losses on the season, the Stars registered more OT losses than any other team. A statistic that makes sense since they play more overtime games than most teams. In fact, the Stars have yet to play 5 consecutive games without an overtime.
The Stars currently sit #2 in the Coastal Division behind the Long Beach Sharks. A team they lost back to back games in overtime/shootout earlier this month.
A team that keeps it close, over 50% of the New England Stars games have been decided by a single goal and 72% of the teams losses have come by a single goal. With 9 games remaining on the regular season schedule, the team has yet to clinch a play off spot. The Cape Cod Islanders, LA Fighting Spirit and Northeast Generals are all in contention with the Stars to fill the remaining 3 spots behind the Long Beach Sharks.
The Stars currently hold a 20-7-11 record. Only 5 of the teams losses were by more than a single goal.
