Despite losing the faceoff, the Canucks scored the fastest overtime playoff goal in team history on Saturday. Alex Edler created the turnover, Daniel Sedin provided the dish, and Alex Burrows supplied the finish, all in a mere 11 seconds. It all happened so fast that thousands of Canucks fans didn’t even see the goal. 11 seconds is not enough time for a bathroom break or to grab a snack from the fridge. But there are lots of things that can be accomplished in 11 seconds and it might help us understand how incredibly quick this goal truly was.
