The Tampa Bay Lightning have just won the fourth longest game in NHL history. Six hours after the puck was first dropped, Tampa forward Brayden Point finally got a shot past Columbus goalie Joonis Korpisalo.
In 5OT, Brayden Point scored his second goal of the game, a wristshot from the point on a rebound. The shot came right after Vladislav Gavrikov got hurt blocking a shot and just moments after Columbus killed a delay-of-game penalty.
Check out the raw emotion in this hockey hug.
And the Tampa Bay Lightning won their first playoff game since May of 2018.
