The Checkers latest playoff game lasted more than six hours with LeHigh Valley scoring the winning goal at 1:10 Thursday morning in the fifth overtime.

The game lasted 146 minutes, 48 seconds.

Alex Lyon passed the Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in a game with his 66th save coming in the second overtime, en route to 94 saves in the five-overtime win. That game had been the longest in AHL history, and it ended when Ryan Potulny scored 2:58 into the fifth overtime.

The game's real MVP, though, was Phantoms goalie Alex Lyon, who made 94 saves, four off the AHL record set 10 years ago by Michael Leighton.

With the win, the Phantons took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Atlantic Division Finals series. And going. And going - straight into the American Hockey League record books. His counterpart in net, Alex Nedeljkovic of Charlotte, was no slouch himself. Incredibly, Phantons goalie Alex Lyon almost doubled that.

An ice hockey game spanning two days, lasting more than six hours, with five periods of overtime and nearly 150 shots, finally finished in the early hours of Thursday morning to earn a place in the record books. That demoralizing feeling has to be amplified when you consider the Checkers' shot total advantage, and the fact that the loss pushes them to the brink of elimination (3-1) in the series.
