Watch: Longest game in CHL history comes to end in 5th OT


Hockey history was made Sunday in Victoria, British Columbia, as the Everett Silvertips defeated the Victoria Royals 3-2 in a record-setting fifth overtime period, with the sudden-death winner ending the longest game in the history of the Canadian Hockey League.

Silvertips forward Cal Babych finally ended things after 151:36 of play, somehow finding the legs to finish a breakaway in the eighth period.

To make matters more impressive, the goal clinched the series, sending the Silvertips to the second round of the WHL playoffs.
