I checked the NHL rulebook and didn't see anything about this situation, although I certainly could have missed it. I know we have some refs hanging around here though, so I was curious to see what people thought.
I'm pretty sure that the play from the last prior faceoff until the sound of the accidental buzzer would become void if the ref blows the whistle. They'd return the puck to the last previous spot, and hold the clock accordingly to so as to not miss any time.
