The camera shoots at 30 frames per second and it took 7 frames for the puck to go from the pad to hitting the camera. That is 0.23333 seconds.
194 inches in 0.23333 seconds = 47.2 mph
A few of the shots took 6 frames which would have put them at 55.1 mph, but most were right at the 7 frame mark.
I'm sure it's not as accurate as having a radar gun on it, but I'm sure I'm somewhere in that ballpark.
Brainiac! Math doesn't lie .... if the information is correct.
