Five Overtimes!

Last night, an AHL playoff game between Lehigh Valley and Charlotte went to five overtimes! Winning goalie Alex Lyon ended up making 94 saves on 95 shots for the 2-1 victory for Lehigh Valley. That’s eight periods of hockey in one night…over two full regulation games. The game didn’t end until after 1am. It’s impressive that anyone could even skate after that much time on the ice. At some point, if I was the goalie, I’d just “accidentally” let one slip past me. I understand its the playoffs, but enough’s enough.
