Longest Division Playoff Game

Recommended Posts

is anybody watching the braves/astros game right now?

It's in the 15th inning!

If the braves get to bat again, Clemens is warming up in the bullpen!

I'm not a fan of either team, but I've become engrossed.

You my friend must be a sports fanatic like me!

I have not seen all the game, but did I hear them say two grand slams? Turkey dinner is over and I just turned the game back on.

WOW!!!!

Turned the TV on and saw 18th inning and started watching. I'm not a big baseball fan though. So the Braves are out. Wow! 18 innings! Longest post-season game in MLB history!

i 'only' tuned in for the 8th inning... I guess I only watched one game :)

This was amazing... both teams used every player on the bench. The guys were so tired by the end, Braves almost won in the top of the 18th(!) because of an exhaustion error.

Clemens is unbelievable. He's a 0th ballot hall of famer.

Ya the first baseman dropped the pass but it wasn't serious. They didn't almost lose.

true... but whenever you give up free outs, especially in extra innings, you are asking to lose the game.

Again, amazed at what i just saw.

Meh. I don't really care about baseball. The Angels and Yankees are still scoreless. I hope the Angels finally eliminate these guys.

Yankees, with an assist from the home plate up, won in game 4. Anaheim lead going into the 7th but the Wankees got some crap calls and won. Game 5 tonight.

GO ANGELS!

Say it BTH! Say it LOUD AND CLEAR!

Shout it from the mountain tops - the Yankees and their 200+ million dollar salary have to be bumped off.

Speaking of the longest game, here's a list of the 5 longest playoff overtime games in the NHL.

1 Detroit 1, Montreal Maroons 0 6 176:30 Mud Bruneteau 3/24/36 SF, Gm 1 Montreal

2 Toronto 1, Boston 0 6 164:46 Ken Doraty 4/3/33 SF, Gm 5 Toronto

3 Philadelphia 2, Pittsburgh 1 5 152:01 Keith Primeau 5/4/00 CSF, Gm 4 Pittsburgh

4 Pittsburgh 3 Washington 2 4 139:15 Petr Nedved 4/24/96 CQF, Gm 4 Washington

5 Toronto 3, Detroit 2 4 130:18 Jack McLean 3/23/43 SF, Gm 2 Detroit

The first number of the bold numbers is the number of overtime periods. The second is the total minutes of the game. The last name is the winning team.

The one I remember watching was the Islanders/Capitals one where Pat Lafontaine did a spin-around at the blue line and pretty well shot blindly and it got by the Washington goalie, Bob Mason.

By the way, here's a link with 'Epic' overtime playoff games. It includes Montreal's win over the Don Cherry Bruins in 1979.

A good read.

Ouch, been there after watching late west coast playoff games and making sales presentations on very little sleep next morning. At least I could not be a little nervous as I was only a little awake!

I think I call this bad hockey when this happens.

I have only caught a bit of this game. 5-2 Angels huh...

5-3 Angels in the bottom of the 7th

Yankees got outta a massive jam in the 6th, bases loaded 1 out but nothing happened.

BTW, Randy Johnson's nick is the Big Unit. Is it just me or is this nick a tad over the top? Can't think of a more perverted nickname in sports than 'The Big Unit'
