From The Waterloo Record:
"The Queen’s Golden Gaels and the Guelph Gryphons staged an epic battle in the opener of their Ontario university women’s hockey final series.
The women’s teams hooked up for the longest game in collegiate hockey history – that’s Canadian or U.S., men’s or women’s."
The contest started Wednesday night and stretched into Thursday morning, extending into a sixth overtime period.
It dragged on for a total 167 minutes and 14 seconds before former Cambridge Fury star Morgan McHaffie gave her Gaels a 2-1 decision at the Gryphon Centre."
Interestingly, Guelph held blew the 1-0 lead with just 5 seconds left in regulation time.
This game beat the previous collegiate record by 17 minutes and eight seconds. The former record was set a year ago when Quinnipiac University and Union College collided in an Eastern College Athletic Conference quarter-final game.
The longest NHL game on record was played on March 24, 1936 when Detroit needed 176 minutes and 30 seconds to tame the Montreal Maroons 1-0.
