In the AHL played the longest match

By the time the puck dropped Wednesday night, the American Hockey League's Charlotte Checkers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms (affiliates of the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes and Philadelphia Flyers respectively) were probably already exhausted, as they'd played the third game of their second-round series the previous night (Lehigh Valley won that one 5-1).

The game had started at 7pm on Wednesday night in Charlotte, North Carolina, but lasted six hours six minutes. The Checkers must win that game to stay alive in the seven game Atlantic Division Finals. That came April 24, 2008 when Philadelphia defeated Albany 3-2 in a game that was just under four minutes shorter at 82:58 of playing time. Until Krushelnyski - son of former NHL All-Star Mike Krushelnyski - finally beat Alex Nedeljkovic, who finished with 51 saves.

California becomes first state requiring all new homes be built with solar
The commission endorsed the requirement after representatives of builders, utilities and solar manufacturers voiced support. California , the 5 largest economy in the world, is about to mandate the installation of solar panels in all the new homes.

There are plenty of heroes in a five-overtime hockey game, but it's safe to say the winning goalie and the game-winning goal scorer are a the top of the list. He made 40 saves in regulation, 11 in the first overtime, 15 in the second, 12 in the third, 14 in the fourth and two in the fifth. Like Lyon, Leighton played in a five-OT game, but he lost (the Phantoms won that game, too). Game 5 isn't scheduled to be played until Saturday night. Because of the gap between games, he was scheduled to move the Phantoms out of their locker room and to a practice arena after the game.
