Lady Gryphs play 2nd longest game in hockey history
Morgan McHaffie ended the longest game in collegiate hockey history with a goal in the sixth overtime as the Queen's Lady Gaels defeated the Guelph Gryphons 2-1 in CIS women's hockey action.
McHaffie's goal at 17:14 of the sixth extra period ended the game at 167 minutes 14 seconds, including 107 minutes and 14 seconds of extra time. That's the longest game on record in CIS or NCAA hockey -- women's or men's.
When compared to the NHL, it trails only a game played on March 24, 1936 that saw Detroit beat Montreal 1-0 after 176 minutes and 30 seconds of action.
The win gave the Gaels as 1-0 lead in the best-of-three Ontario University Athletics women's hockey final.
Guelph was only five seconds away from victory in regulation after Tori Woods opened the scoring in the third period, but Becky Conroy tied the game in the dying seconds.
Queen's has now won ten games in a row. Game #2 in the best-of-three OUA Final series goes Friday night in Kingston.
