Did the clock `stop’ in Anaheim?

On the heels of the now-famous “clock stoppage” at Staples Center on Feb. 1, in which the on-screen clock clearly paused late in the third period, before Drew Doughty’s controversial final-second, game-winning goal against Columbus, did anyone notice this last night? As pointed out by an astute reader, the same thing seemed to happen at Honda Center last night. Check the video with 32.1 seconds remaining. This is from the Prime Ticket feed, and I haven’t seen the KDOC feed or any official arena clock. The point isn’t to infer anything or draw any conclusions, because I don’t even know what it means, if anything. And, if anything, the point might be to emphasize what a poor job the league has done in giving a coherent explanation for any of this.
