Can a hockey game end in a tie?

No, you cannot end a hockey game in a tie.

At the end of a regulation hockey game, if the score is tied, the game goes into an extra period, also known as overtime.

A shootout occurs if the score remains a tie even after a period of overtime.

Each hockey team rotates taking alternate shots on goals at the other team's goalie.

Each team gets three opportunities to score a goal.

The team that has the most goals scored at the end of the shootout wins the game.
