    I have to proudly admit that it's a Canadian phrase coined by Foster Hewitt meaning the player is scoring a hockey goal. Have a look at the website and you can find bits and pieces of information regarding the origins of this phrase.

    It could well have a figurative meaning also. It's used in the "mating game", to mean that someone has achieved some success in "scoring" with the object of their affection.

    Joan: [to friends, Mary and Beth] I'm going to go talk to that cute guy over there.

    {Joan leaves, starts talking to the guy and they leave the bar together}

    Mary: [to Beth] She shoots, she scores.
