I have summarized Latvian NHL player statistics about goal and point streaks and conversely zero goal and zero point streaks. At the start I wanted to know which is the longest and which is the best point streak. The results are interesting, but I’m not surprised about them.
I took a little break from "blogging" but not from hockey trading cards. Here are my newest cards:

The importance of IIHF 2015 World ice hockey Championship in one night has grown from “another one” to a real chance for Latvia to qualify automatically for 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The IIHF announced - “The qualification structure for the Olympic men’s tournament will have an immediate impact on the upcoming IIHF World Championship, as the 2015 IIHF World Ranking will be used to seed the top eight automatic entries and the men’s qualification program.” This announcement (for me at least) came like thunder from clear sky.
What is hockey and why do I love it so much? My first memories about hockey come from 1996, when I was 4 years old. All family had gathered around the TV and there was a news story or a commercial about a hockey game which would be broadcasted. There was talk about some Latvian player and a cup, and that everyone, of course, will watch that game. I thought - if everyone will watch that game, then count me in. Well, of course, I was forbidden to do that, because normal kids sleep at night. But the next morning I was told that Latvian player who played in that game has won the cup. I probably didn’t have an opinion about that, I was 4 years old.
