2007 Marathon GameEdit

On February 10, 2007 after 144 minutes and 32 seconds of play, the Toronto Jr. Canadiens defeated the Pickering Panthers in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs. The game-winning goal was credited to Kyle Wetering at the 4:32 mark of the 5th overtime, and Toronto outshot Pickering 88-86. On February 12, 2007, TSN show That's Hockey showed highlights of the game and announced that it may be honoured in the Hockey Hall of Fame as the longest junior hockey game in history, far surpassing the last recorded record.[citation needed] A feature column also appeared in the Toronto Sun about the historical game. The game has been officially named the longest game in Ontario Hockey Association history.[citation needed]
