Lightning “Open” Blue Jackets In An Epic 5 Overtime Game

August 11, 2020

Hockey ‘offs, I can live with, even as the kids say—Get into.”

Thus far a pair of very different (3-2) games with Calgary (Flames) edging Dallas(Stars), and then in an epic 5 overtime tilt, Tampa Bay (Lightning) won vs Columbus (Blue Jackets).

Brayden Point’s second goal and yes his second “point,” of what was the fourth longest game in NHL history, at 10:27 of the fifth overtime period won it for “T.B.” which despite finishing 30 points ahead of Columbus in last season’s regular season, were swept by John Tortorella’s Blue Jackets.

Tortorella coached the Lightning to their lone title in 2004.

Both goaltenders were great as you might expect in a 5 overtime. Truly gallant in defeat, Joonas Korpisalo had a record 85 saves while Andrei Vasilevskiy had 61 in a win.
