The Tampa Bay Lightning and The Columbus Blue Jackets meet for the second year in a row in the eastern conference quarter-finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Bolts are looking to excise the demons and please the “hockey gods” from last year’s matchup when the Jackets swept them in four games. It was a competitive game with lots of hits, collisions and a bit of blood on the ice. After three periods the score was tied at 2-2 pushing the game into overtime. After 5 overtime periods, Tampa Bay’s Brayden Point buries the game-winner! In the best of seven series, the Lightning take the lead 1-0.

This will be recorded as the longest game in Lightning history, one of the four longest games in the NHL’s history and so on point for a year like 2020.

So Did The Lightning Just Win The Cup?
