Record Setting Night in Albany

Game five in the series between the Albany River Rats and Philadelphia Phantoms was one for the record books. First of all, it was the longest game in AHL history as it lasted 5 overtimes! Secondly, Rats goalie Michael Leighton made a record, 98 saves! Yes, 98...that is not a typo.

Unfortunately for the Rats, they lost the game 3-2 which gives the Phantoms a 3-2 lead in the series.

Just 1809 fans watched what could have been the best game in AHL history.
