It would not have been out of the question to resume that game from the point of the misinterpretation, finish it, and so long as that overtime did not take too long (a predetermined amount of playing time, say 20 minutes of actual time), they could have given both teams an hour of rest and played Game 4 immediately afterwards.

It's something to consider anyhow.

Or just get it right to begin with.
No, there aren't. There is a difference between the game being over and the game being official. No league goes back to restart/resume games that have been declared "official".

Should the AHL & NHL have some sort of protest system? Absolutely. But even if they put one in place the day after game three, it wouldn't have mattered because by that time game three was "official".
