then there will only be one substring aafter the regex analysis, either
1 matching substring (the whole string) or one none matching substring.

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"

<xsl:template name="main">
  <xsl:for-each select="(
			'3 minutes 57 seconds',
			'3 minutes',
			'5 seconds',

:<xsl:value-of select="."/>
:::    <xsl:analyze-string select="." regex="([0-9]+) minutes.*$">
	<xsl:value-of select="60 * xs:integer(regex-group(1))" />


$ saxon8 -it main regex.xsl 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

:3 minutes 57 seconds
:::    180

:3 minutes
:::    180

:5 seconds
:::    0

:::    0
