How did hockey get its name?
Hockey was first played in Canada and was called “stick and ball” games. In 1869, the Governor General of Canada Lord Stanley (hence the name Stanley Cup) purchased a large silver bowl for use as a trophy at his own expense, and donated it to be the championship prize of Canada’s top-ranking ice hockey club.
What is power play?
A power play is when a team has more players on the ice than their opponents. The team with more players is said to have an advantage, or to be on a power play. A player from the opposing team sits in the penalty box for a certain amount of time, often two minutes. Power plays are usually called after an opposing player commits a penalty.
What are the periods for?
Periods are used in some sports to split up games into sections of time. For example, there are three periods in ice hockey and four quarters in American football. The period starts when one of the teams scores or when the game starts after halftime or any other break. The period ends when a certain amount of time has passed or when one of the teams scores again.

Work hard to get good at something; being the best will take care of itself. You hear it all the time. It’s not wrong, exactly. But I think it’s misleading, because it implies you can be good without ever being the best. And you can’t.
You can be good at something without being the best, but if you want to get even better you have to beat the people who are already the best. So in practice, your strategy has to include a plan for overcoming the resistance of people who are currently winning. You may have no choice but to compete directly with them.
It’s this last part that gets left out of the advice to “work hard to get good at something; being the best will take care of itself.” There is always a winner, and if you want to change things you have to convince them to change.
