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

Alex Krushelnysk scored the winner in the fifth overtime of the longest AHL game in history Wednesday

Alex Lyon passed the Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in a game with his 66th save coming in the second overtime, en route to 94 saves in the five-overtime win.

The Atlantic Division Final play-off game was locked at 1-1 after the regulation three periods, which meant additional periods of overtime, each lasting 20 minutes, until the winning goal was scored.

Congo confirms one dead from Ebola, 11 others infected
Tthe deadly Ebola virus made a comeback to the continent after the Democratic Republic of Congo declared its presence on Tuesday. It is contracted by contact with bodily fluids - touching a sick or dead person is a well-known source of infection.

Lyon posted the second-most saves in league history, stopping the last 79 shots he faced while shutting out Charlotte over the final 119:56.

The longest game in American Hockey League history began on a Wednesday night and ended six hours later on a Thursday morning. The previous longest game was between the Philadelphia Phantoms and the Albany River Rats on April 24th, 2008. But the Phantoms never would have made it to that point if it weren't for the absurd performance of their goaltender, Alex Lyon.

Walmart Invests $16 Billion in Flipkart
Walmart is keen on gaining market share in India, where Flipkart claims to have 100 million users signed up to its platform. Last year, however, the company's valuation dropped to about $12 billion, and the duo lost their billionaire status.

Charlotte outshot Lehigh Valley 95-53, including 54-29 in the overtime periods.

Despite making that large amount of saves, Lyon, 25, finished four saves shy of the AHL record. That's 94 stops on 95 shots, or a.989 save percentage through almost eight periods of hockey. That demoralizing feeling has to be amplified when you consider the Checkers' shot total advantage, and the fact that the loss pushes them to the brink of elimination (3-1) in the series.
