Phantoms win longest AHL game ever


Recommended Posts

Alex Lyon stopped 94 (yes, 94) of 95 shots including 79 in a row and Alex Krushelnyski (whoever that is....Mikes son?) scored the quintuple OT winner as the Phantoms won after 146:48 of hockey.

I followed the game (nearly play-by-play) last night on twitter.  Tony @TonyAndrock   /   http://insideahlhockey.com/

 

The Phantoms played most of this game with 5 defensemen as Sam Morin left the game with a knee injury as he got twisted along the boards.  They were also without the Sanheim, their top center, Varana, and Aube-Kubel also due to a 3 game suspension.

 

This game meant a lot to those playing tonight as the Phantoms were able to take a 3-1 lead in the series going home to game 5 in Allentown on Saturday.

 

 Yes, @flyercanuck  Mikes's son.

At one point last night Tony tweeted the Checkers staff was handing out popcorn to the 1000 or so left in attendance during the 4th OT.

I thought I'd post another on how great Alex Lyon was in this game with the Huge Win after 94 saves.  That's crazy -- 3 games worth on 95 shots.

Might not have been if not for this great player by Myers....

 

 

 

Pretty good at skating the puck up ice too...

 

 

Lyon is 6-0 in the playoffs this year. Not sure why they would start Tokarski again.

Lyon went the final 119 and change without a goal allowed, essentially the equivalent of two shutouts back to back on the same night. Insane.

Lyon sets the record for most saves in a game by a winning goaltender. 

 

The record holder for most saves in a game?

 

Michael Leighton. 98 saves in a 5 OT loss to the Phantoms.

On April 24, 2008, Michael Leighton, then with the Albany River Rats, made 98 saves in an ultimately losing cause in a five-OT game against the Philadelphia Phantoms. Ryan Potulny scored the game winning goal at 2:58 of the fifth overtime on the Phantoms' 100th shot of the night. Winning goaltender Scott Munroe stopped 65 of 67 shots in the 3-2 victory.
