Flyers prospect Lyon makes 94 saves in longest game in AHL history

Alex Lyon makes 94 saves as Phantoms win longest game in AHL history

Alex Lyon and the Lehigh Valley Phantoms played in the longest game in the 82-year history of the AHL against the Charlotte Checkers on Wednesday.

In all, the game lasted 146:48.

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. And going. And going - straight into the American Hockey League record books.

Lyon stopped 94 of 95 shots, which is the second-highest total in league history, in a 2-1 5OT win over Charlotte in Game 4 of the Atlantic Division Finals. The previous longest game was between the Philadelphia Phantoms and the Albany River Rats on April 24th, 2008. Lyon was the Frank Brimsek victor as the top high school goalie in the state in 2011 and was a three-year standout at Yale.

Lyon, however, did set a new franchise record for saves in a game. His counterpart in net, Alex Nedeljkovic of Charlotte, was no slouch himself.

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. That's 94 stops on 95 shots, or a.989 save percentage through almost eight periods of hockey.

There was one former Griffins who played in Wednesday's game in Lehigh Valley left victor Chris Connor.
