The Longest College Hockey Game in History!

The Compton Family Ice Arena played host last night -- and this morning -- to a 5 OT Hockey East Tournament game between UMASS and our Fighting Irish.

In the end -- a goal by UMASS with 8 minutes and 18 seconds left (1:24 AM ET) of the fifth overtime period -- gave the Minutemen a 4 - 3 win over Notre Dame.  The good news -- it's a best of three series -- so even though they played more than two games of hockey last night, it only counts one...

Notre Dame freshman goalie Cal Petersen set a NCAA record with 87 saves -- in the losing effort.

The two teams are back at it tonight at 7:05 ET.
