The Lehigh Valley Phantoms have won the longest game in AHL history

Game 5 will be in Charlotte on Saturday evening at 6 p.m.

Charlotte, which out-shot Lehigh Valley 14-5 in the period, nearly scored 10 minutes later when Andrew Poturalski's shot from about 10 feet in front of the net bounced off Lyon and skidded in front of the goal.

Less than four minutes after the Checkers and Phantoms broke the American Hockey League record for the longest game, the Phantoms' Oskar Lindblom shoveled the puck into the Charlotte goal for a 2-1 Lehigh Valley victory. That game had been the longest in AHL history, and it ended when Ryan Potulny scored 2:58 into the fifth overtime.

With 13 minutes, 12 seconds left in the fifth OT, Alex Krushelnyski scored on a one-timer from the left circle to end the marathon at 1:09 a.m. - more than six hours after it started.

Former UND forward Corban Knight (four shots on goal) also played in Wednesday night's game for Lehigh Valley, which grabbed a 3-1 series lead in the best-of-seven set. The Phantoms, then based in Philadelphia, faced the Albany River Rats, then the Carolina Hurricanes AHL affiliate, in a game that reached five overtimes on April 24, 2008. Philadelphia's AHL franchise is now Lehigh Valley.

Lyon was under pressure much of the night as Lehigh Valley lost a defenseman to injury in the first period and played the rest of the game with five defensemen. Patrick Brown tied it for Charlotte at 6:52 of the second. Lyon finished the game with the second most saves in an AHL game, stopping 94 of 95 shots from Charlotte.

And, then. lots of zeroes. But Lehigh Valley goalie Alex Lyon was almost impossible to beat - much as he was Tuesday night in the Phantoms' 5-1 victory.
