The Longest Game In NHL History

from Dave Stubbs of Habs Inside/Out,

Detroit Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood was impressive in his 4-0 blanking of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Saturday’s Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

But Osgood wasn’t forced into overtime, obviously, quite unlike his late Detroit goaltending colleague Normie Smith on March 24/25, 1936.

Smith would make 90 saves to shut out the Montreal Maroons in the sixth overtime period at the Montreal Forum, outlasting Maroons goalie Lorne Chabot (66 saves) in what remains the longest game in NHL history.

continued and a must read if you are into ‘hockey history’ and worth a visit for some great photos too.  Part 2, which has some ‘puck intrigue’ can be found here...
