Carter Verhaeghe shift notes

My shift-by-shift notes for my article, for those who are inclined at how bad I am at the "eye test". I didn't re-format anything from how I originally took them aside from spelling, so there's some inconsistencies in how lengths, on/off times are kept. The first time is the time on the clock he came onto the ice, so it counts down. I typed most of this standing up while watching the play, so... yeah.
