One overtime didn't solve anything, so we go to period 5 for the first time in Union's Division I history. [2048x1536]

Two overtimes didn't decide anything, so here they come for a third. [2048x1536]

How often do you see a 6 up there? [2048x1536]

Amazingly, the players still have enough energy for a little pushing and shoving and even a punch or two late in period 6. [2048x1536]

Discussion with the captains. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

Trouble for Union late in the 6th, one of the linesmen called Torren Delforte for a 5-minute major penalty for a hit from behind. [2048x1536]

And this penalty carries on into the 4th overtime. [2048x1536]

Union killed the major and here we are in the middle of the 7th period. Pictures stop here because who really thinks to bring enough batteries for 7 periods of hockey? [2048x1536]

After retreiving one more set of batteries from the car during the 7th intermission, a picture of Kris Mayotte leading the team onto the ice for the 8th period. [2048x1536]

An 8 on the board. Through 140 minutes of hockey, tie score and even shots. [2048x1536]
