Numbers for Nerds

As Game 2 entered the wee hours of the morning (except on the West coast), the commentators loved to bring up the longevity of the night in comparison to others that both teams have played. Tuesday night's 116:12 marathon was the longest in Blackhawk history, but despite entering the league 67 years later, the Ducks still have one game to top it. Game 1 of the 2003 Western Conference Semifinals against the top seeded Dallas Stars took 140:48 to decide, with Petr Sykora giving the underdog Mighty Ducks the win just into the fifth overtime with this beauty.
