There's treachery afoot! (No, not about Slewbban)

Did the Kings' game clock malfunction by accident?

Or not?

So, from what this says, even if it's been determined there was something funny about all this, the Kings win stands. I'm guessing there should at least be a fine.

someone is in trouble!

But isn't there an official time keeper that sits near/in the penalty box area that has the official game clock?

Not like it matters... Blue Jackets would've lost in OT...

Hell, they deserved to lose after letting Dustin Penner score :pop:

The Blue Jackets should be happy, they probably would have lost in OT and they probably don't want the OT point anyways since it helps their quest for the #1 overall pick (well best chance in the lottery for it).

I used to work part time at an ice rink running the scoreboards for a roller hockey league over the summer. One night, the ref, who was also my travel team's coach, had plans. The game was just dragging on. All sorts of whistles. Got to a point where he just stopped calling off sides or even penalties because he wanted to get out of there.

So, at the first intermission, he skates over to me and asks if I can run the clock a bit after each whistle. So after each whistle, I let it go like 5 seconds or so. The 2nd period goes by a bit faster.

About half way through the 3rd pd, one of the teams called a time out, and the ref signalled me to start running the clock during the time out. I hit the button... Maybe 25 seconds come off, and someone from the losing team noticed and started flipping out. So we ended up having to put the time back on. Whatever.

I know, I know... csb... I don't even think it's that good a story, but I've just remembered it 15 yrs later for some reason.
