So there you have it.

The human error that stopped the Columbus Blue Jackets from taking the Stanley Cup this past season.

Pretty weak sauce from the NHL. Human error? That's their only explanation?

I suppose it's human error every time we saw it occur in multiple buildings around the NHL then, right?

Looks to me like just another piss poor investigation.

It happened several times this season even after the Columbus game, just didn't have an impact.

It's a pretty weak explanation. Especially since I've now noticed it in a vast number of games, across the league, and a wide range of teams. There are pauses in the clock during the final minutes of just a good number of games. I witnessed it quite a few times during games in the eastern conference last year. Just doesn't make sense. Like Hammond said, there is a switch there for the clock, and a loud audible noise is made every time it is activated to stop the clock. It is not like someone is flickering with it. This explanation is highly inadequate.

I think TSN showed it happening in a basketball game as well so it seems to me to be the clock re-setting thing lombardi mentioned.

I'd be pissed if I was the timekeeper and didn't do anything.

Did this Hurzeler guy come and work with the clock at Staples? Has anyone ran the clock for 20 minutes to see if it is a full 20 minutes or if it's ever done those adjustments again? Does anyone have an explaination for the countless other times this has happen that were shown in a post on these boards (and can be found on Youtube)?

It doesn't even say in the article if Hurlezer was part of the investigation or just commenting on the situation.

Poor article and poor explaination by the league.

I saw it happen in the playoffs. I think it was against the Blues in St. Louis...

Human error indeed.

Did Jeff Carter play in this game? I don't remember. Wonder what he thinks of this decision (besides "well, who gives a ****? I have a ring now").

This is exactly what I was thinking.

Another terrible job by the league but I have come to expect it over the past few years.

It could never be a software issue could it?

Quote:
Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post confirmed it was human error via NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. He also spoke with Peter Hurzeler, the man in charge of all timing at the London Olympics, who explained that the pausing of the clock at 1.8 seconds was manual, citing that clocks do not know how to stop on their own.

The Olympics use equipment capable of detecting movement within millimetres in the pool, as well as on the track. So the question, then: If clocks do not know how or when to stop on their own, how could you explain the delay in Los Angeles?

It’s possible that somebody stopped it,” Hurzeler said.
This guy basically saying any clock issues during the Olympics will be human error.
