Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Toronto Sun:
Not every day you hear about a game taking nine periods. Who would have ever guessed hockey history could be made on a winter night at the Chesswood Arena?
It doesn’t get any more Canadian than this story. This was a game of legend before it even ended. And unless the Hockey Hall of Fame can find anything different, the Ontario Provincial Junior Hockey Association first round playoff game on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2007, between the Pickering Panthers and the Toronto Jr. Canadiens will go down as the longest junior hockey game in history.
“The crowd doubled in size throughout the game,” said Panthers media relations director John McCartney, who is also a producer at TSN. “During one intermission, I was stopped by a guy in the lobby who said, ‘Is that game still going?’ After saying yes he grabbed his buddies and came down.”
