Lightning outlast Blue Jackets 3-2 in 5 OT thriller

TORONTO (AP) By the time he launched the last shot, Brayden Point was just trying to do anything he could to end the fourth-longest game in NHL history.

"I just see a rolling puck and I just throw it on net," Point said after scoring 10:27 into the fifth overtime to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets in their playoff opener Tuesday.

"I'm not really aiming," he added. "Just sling one there and lucky enough it finds a corner."
