How long is each period in a hockey game?
Each NHL game features 60 minutes of playing time, broken down into three 20-minute periods. The league also mandates a 17-minute intermission after the first and second periods to flood the ice and provide the players with a rest period.
A professional game consists of three periods of twenty minutes, the clock running only when the puck is in play.
