Jackets-Rangers produces another clock controversy

3 Comments

When the Columbus Blue Jackets go on the road, it seems like clock controversies follow them. The incident involving the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center robbed them of a chance to go to overtime while Sunday’s incident went in their “favor.”

Here’s video of what maybe should have been a 3-1 goal for the New York Rangers in the waning moments of the second period. Paul Kukla mentions that the Columbus feed showed the goal happening with .2 seconds left while the Rangers one has it with .1:

The Rangers ended up winning 3-2 in overtime, so it didn’t really hurt the Rangers. The Blue Jackets still seem primed to get the best odds of winning the draft lottery, too. With that in mind, this boils down to just being something the league should have its eye on when the games matter for – you  know – both teams.
