Rumors say fans were frozen to their seats when the game was over. From AP-
It took five overtimes and nearly six hours, but Quinnipiac managed to edge out Union College 3-2 early Saturday in the longest hockey game in college history.
Greg Holt of the Bobcats scored with 10:22 remaining in the fifth overtime to give Quinnipiac the win in the ECAC best-of-three quarterfinal series.
At 150 minutes and 22 seconds, it was the longest game in college hockey history. The previous record was set in 2006, when Yale beat Union College 3-2 in a game that was 141 minutes and 35 seconds long.
Union scored two goals in the first period, while Quinnipiac scored a goal each in the first and second periods.
As you see Union College lost the previous record holding game also. Will they go for three in a row some where down the line?
