A few numbers for you:
- 138:06 – length of the game (whereas a normal game is 60 minutes)
- 6th longest game in NHL playoff history***
- 72 saves by Roberto Luongo – “one short of Kelly Hrudey’s playoff record. Luongo did set the record for saves in a playoff debut and shattered Kirk McLean’s franchise postseason record of 52 saves“
- 12:32 am – the time at which number 33, Henrik Sedin, scored the sweet, sweet goal that let us finally go to bed, happy that we won game #1 on the road to Stanley!
**i.e., my American readers
***the longest one ever was 176:30, back in 1936, involving Detroit and the Montreal Maroons.
****or whoever is playing the Flames really. My recently trip to Calgary has made me hate the Flames even more than I did before!
