Canucks-Blues Game Goes Into Extra-Puck-Time Or Something

ST. LOUIS—A recent hockey game between the St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks went into extra-puck-time or something, ESPN reported Monday, after the two teams completed the real part of the contest yet continued to skate around for some time after that.
