The most recognizable sound in hockey other than the whistle is the ring of the goal post: This is a compilation of goal posts in the 2011/2012 NHL season. Goal posts are memorable because they signify almost "would be" goals. The difference between a goal and a goal post is often times determined by less than an inch.
In some cases the shot would have had lasting implications on the outcome of a playoff series. For example, in the 2012 playoffs the Washington Capitals hit 2 goal posts in overtime of game 3 against the New York Rangers (at 1:58 and 2:30). The Capitals ended up losing that game and eventually the series. Even a single game in that series would have made a difference since it went all the way to 7 games. In another example the Los Angeles Kings hit 2 goal posts in game 4 of the finals against the New Jersey Devils. Scoring any one of those may have made the difference in that game. If they had won that game, they would have won the Stanley Cup in a 4 game sweep of the Devils, instead of 6 (these goal posts occur at 3:41 and 3:51).
