The marathon game ended win Alex Krushelnyski had the the game-winner, giving the Phantoms a 3-1 series lead.

Phantoms goalie Alex Lyon made an astonishing 94 saves from 95 shots, including 79 consecutive stops over the final 119 minutes 56 seconds of the game. Game 4 of their playoff series was held on Wednesday night, and it went to five overtimes. The previous longest game was between the Philadelphia Phantoms and the Albany River Rats on April 24th, 2008. Incredibly, Phantons goalie Alex Lyon almost doubled that.

He finished four saves shy of the AHL record, which was set during the game 10 years ago that was finished by Potulny's victor. That's 94 stops on 95 shots, or a.989 save percentage through almost eight periods of hockey.
