from Mike Sielski of the Wall Street Journal,
To watch the closing seconds of the Los Angeles Kings’ 3-2 win last month over the Columbus Blue Jackets is to see a thrilling sequence of hockey. At the last possible moment, with the score tied, Kings defenseman Drew Doughty snaps the puck past Columbus goaltender Curtis Sanford. The goal wins the game. The crowd thunders.
Most regular-season sports highlights are quickly forgotten, no matter how exciting they may be. But the tape of this Feb. 1 incident has become a platform for conspiracy theories. It has prompted the NHL to implement new rules and could become a major source of embarrassment for the league during the playoffs.
