Special teams are combinations of players with the specific responsibilites of killing penalties and/or scoring on power plays. Effectiveness of these teams may be evaluated by percentage of power plays in which a goal is scored (when the scoring team is on the power play) or with a plus/minus statistic or goals against (when the team is short handed). A notable example of special teams is the Ottawa Senators' "CASH" line.
