Is this done after every whistle? If not, hypothetically speaking, a goal that happens .1 seconds after the end of the period would have technically counted if the clock was properly adjusted.
i think the officials worry about it more if its a 1 goal game or a tie game late and where the faceoff is. A team can have the clock looked at if say a puck goes out of play and a second or 2 extra go off the clock.
I would imagine tho the officials would only look at it very late in a period.
