Alex Lyon of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms was up early as usual Thursday to take a walk and stop for a breakfast sandwich and his morning coffee.

The 25-year-old goalie was no worse for the wear a little over seven hours after he finished a 94-save performance in an American Hockey League playoff game in North Carolina that stretched to seven periods and 146 minutes Mike Alstott Jersey , 48 seconds of play.

”This morning I’m feeling happy, obviously,” he said. ”The saves aren’t as big a deal to me as us getting the win. To win after basically playing 2 games is such an emotional … oh, a relief. The human body wasn’t meant to do that.”

The Philadelphia Flyers‘ top farm club beat the host Charlotte Checkers 2-1 when Alex Krushelnyski scored 6:48 into the fifth overtime. The game began shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday and ended at 1:09 a.m. Thursday, making it the longest game in the AHL’s 82-year history.

Lyon, surprisingly, did not set a record. The AHL mark for most saves in a game belongs to Michael Leighton, who stopped 98 shots for the Albany River Rats in a 3-2, five-overtime loss to the Phantoms on April 24, 2008.

”Someone rubbed that in my face,” Lyon said, laughing. ”You think you’re in the record book, and you’re not.”

The NHL record for saves is 92 by the Detroit Red Wings‘ Normie Smith in a 1-0 playoff win over the Montreal Maroons in 1936.

Lyon James White Jersey , who started seven games and appeared in 11 for the Flyers this season, stopped the last 79 shots while shutting out Charlotte over the final 119:56. Charlotte outshot Lehigh Valley 95-53, including 54-29 in the overtime periods.

Lyon lost count of how many water bottles he went through; normally he drinks at least eight in a regulation game. To keep their energy up, Lyon and his teammates drank Coke and ate cookies, brownies, fig bars and bread slices during the overtime intermissions.

He went through a range of emotions. At times he savored the atmosphere, especially the fast pace of regulation and the early part of the first overtime. But the game slowed, and he acknowledged getting irrationally frustrated as his teammates struggled to score. He also fought boredom.

”You’re standing in the crease for so long,” he said, ”and you’re seeing the same thing over and over again. It really blends together.”

Lyon said his 94-save feat shouldn’t overshadow the work of his teammates.

”I wish I could act like the warrior in this situation, but we had one of our defensemen go down with a knee injury halfway through the first period,” he said. ”So we were playing with five defensemen (instead of six), which is totally mind-blowing to me.

“At least I can try to recover and take a knee when the puck’s down at the other end. Sometimes you go through four or five minutes of a lull where you’re standing around. Five defensemen? It doesn’t seem like a big deal to maybe a common fan. I’m sure you know it’s so much more ice time Michael Schofield Jersey , just so much more, so that was really impressive.”

The Phantoms lead the Atlantic Division best-of-seven finals 3-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes‘ affiliate and, because of their five-overtime win, can wrap up the series Saturday.

”You put in so much effort and so much work,” Lyons said, ”that it’s nice to come out with something to show for it.”

Last spring, after another crushing postseason loss, Capitals coach Barry Trotz flew to Russia to meet with his best player.

Trotz spoke with Alex Ovechkin about his game and how it might be fine-tuned to prolong his career. They discussed the coming season and setting the tone in training camp for a team getting younger and undergoing a roster overhaul.

There were bumps in the road, but the end result has seen a reinvigorated Ovechkin playing an instrumental role in getting Washington within reach of its first Stanley Cup.

”You don’t want to be a one-trick pony in this league,” Trotz said. ”The league keeps changing on you.”

Ovechkin, whose Capitals faced the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in Game 1 of the final Monday night, scored 49 times this season after just 33 goals in 2016-17.

”The one thing that Alex does better than anybody, maybe in the history of the game Marquel Lee Jersey , is score goals,” Trotz said. ”He has fantastic release. He plays a physical game for a pure-skill guy. There’s so many things that he’s done for the game. But we talked about finding other ways to be effective.”

The 32-year-old Ovechkin has done just that in pretty much every facet of his game.

”I try to do my best in the regular year, in the playoffs,” he said. ”Of course, in the playoffs, you don’t have tomorrow.”

Ovechkin has won the Richard Trophy seven times as the top goal scorer. He has 607 goals in 1,003 career regular-season games, 19th on the career list. Another 49 next season would tie him with Brendan Shanahan for 13th.

”He has that ability to see past the block, see past the goalie,” Trotz said. ”Some of the better goal scorers in this league don’t see goalies, they just see empty spots. Guys that aren’t goal scorers, they see the goalie.”

Trotz sees a certain ease in Ovechkin that wasn’t there when the Capitals were having great regular seasons only to fall well short in the playoffs.

”He’s very comfortable within our group,” Trotz said. ”And he’s very comfortable pushing forward and not worrying about anything else.”

That comfort was on display Sunday when he was asked about the impact his first trip to the Stanley Cup final is having in Russia.

”Vladimir Putin called me and wished me luck Jonathan Ogden Jersey ,” Ovechkin said before pausing. ”No it’s (a) joke.”

Until now, Ovechkin was criticized for the Capitals’ postseason failures. Washington had never moved beyond the second round during his career until this spring surge, with ousters by the Pittsburgh Penguins the last two years especially difficult.

He had 46 goals in 97 career playoff games before adding 12 more on this current playoff run. But despite an experienced roster and plenty of blame to go around, the finger-pointing was often aimed at Ovechkin.

”Being the captain and the highest-paid player, I think he got a lot of unfair criticism,” said Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik, who has played with and against Ovechkin. ”That comes with the territory. I think he understands that, but it was really good to see him get by the second round.

”I don’t think he necessarily did that much different. I think we just played better as a team.”

Physical Gold

BullionVault

Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
