Kadri at the buzzer, as Avalanche beat Blues



EDMONTON, ALBERTA – We’re in Canada, so thank heavens for the Dewey decimal system.

In the old day of pro sports, with hockey being no exception, the clock didn’t transition into decimal points in the final seconds. Anything right at the buzzer, and it was more an interpretive function whether some play just beat it or not. The replay wasn’t always conclusive.

It’s a lot easier now. Still, there was some real drama – maybe a little too much drama for the Colorado Avalanche’s liking – when the video War Room in Toronto replayed Nazem Kadri’s shot as the buzzer was about to go off here at Rogers Place, in the third period of a tie game with the St. Louis Blues.

But the video, matched up with the clock, didn’t lie. Kadri’s shot beat the clock. By a tenth of a second.
