Weary Lightning, Blue Jackets rush to recover for Game 2

After battling over 150 minutes of action in Game 1, the Columbus Blue Jackets and Tampa Bay Lightning now have to quickly regroup for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference first round series on Thursday in Toronto.

Brayden Point's goal in quintuple overtime sealed a 3-2 win for the Lightning in the fourth-longest game in NHL history. The two clubs combined for a league-record 151 shots (88 by Tampa Bay, 63 by Columbus), and 23 skaters had more than 40 minutes of ice time.

"I don't think anybody can understand how hard it is on a player to go through that ... to be in eight periods of hockey and still be able to make the plays they were making, it was remarkable," Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. "Obviously I'm glad that we came out on top, but (that was) a pretty gutty effort by both teams."
