TORONTO (AP) - Brayden Point scored 10:27 into the fifth overtime, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 in the fourth-longest game in Stanley Cup playoff history.

Point scored from just above the left circle, beating Joonas Korpisalo after the goaltender made an NHL-record 85 saves. Point also scored way back in the first period of Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

Vezina Trophy finalist Andrei Vasilevskiy also was outstanding for Tampa Bay, making 61 stops.

The teams combined for 151 shots - most in a NHL game since the league began officially tracking the statistic in 1955-56.
