NAME

Sport::Analytics::NHL::Report::PL - Class for the Boxscore HTML PBP report

SYNOPSYS

Class for the Boxscore HTML PBP report.Should not be constructed directly, but via Sport::Analytics::NHL::Report (q.v.) As with any other HTML report, there are two types: old (pre-2007) and new (2007 and on). Parsers of them may have something in common but may turn out to be completely different more often than not.

This module is the heaviest one of the reports due to vast amounts of data and poor structure of the document. Handle with care.
