    Is there any place to find a team's stats for giving up/scoring the first goal of the game this season?

    NHL.com has a category for it, though it's a little limited:
    NHL.com - Stats

    It's called scoring first/trailing first.

    Tampa this year has the highest single season winning percentage of any team when they have given up the first goal in the last decade (.677).
    Pretty crazy if it holds anyway. Only 3 teams have been .600 or higher.
