BLUE JACKETS TEAM NOTES

  • Columbus and Tampa Bay are meeting in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals for the second-straight year.  The Jackets swept the Presidents’ Trophy winners 4-0 in last year’s first round.
  • CBJ played in a playoff game for the third time in the 2020 postseason and third time in the last four games (1-2; Game 3 and 4 vs. Toronto).  The club is now 6-6 in overtimes in franchise playoff history.
  • With Brayden Point ending the game 10:27 into the fifth overtime, it was the longest playoff game in Blue Jackets history and the fourth longest in NHL history (150:27).  The previous longest CBJ playoff game ended 9:00 into the second overtime (89:00) when Lars Eller scored for Washington on Apr. 17, 2018 (3-2 W).
  • The Blue Jackets and Lightning combined for 151 shots (TBL-88, CBJ-63) to establish the highest combined single-game total by two teams in a single playoff game in NHL history since shots on goal were officially tracked in 1955-56.
  • It was the third one-goal game of the playoffs for the Jackets (1-2).  The team went 20-8-15 in one-goal games in 2019-20, leading the league in wins and games played in one-goal contests.
  • The Blue Jackets scored the first goal of the game for the fourth time in the postseason (2-2; Games 1, 4 and 5 vs. Toronto in ECQS).
  • CBJ led after the second period for the fourth time in the 2020 playoffs (2-2; Games 1, 4 and 5 vs. Toronto in ECQS).  The club went 14-2-5 in the 2019-20 regular season when taking a lead into the third period.
  • Columbus scored a power play goal for the first time in the postseason with the first period goal and finished 1-of-5 on the night (20.0 pct.).  The club went 5-of-10 on the power play against the Lightning in the 2019 series.

BLUE JACKETS PLAYER NOTES

  • G Joonas Korpisalo turned aside 85-of-88 shots (.966 save percentage) to set an NHL record for most saves in a game (since 1955-56 when shots on goal were officially tracked).  He surpassed Kelly Hrudey’s 73 saves on 75 shots for the NY Islanders in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Washington Capitals on Apr. 18, 1987.  It also surpassed Sergei Bobrovsky’ club record of 54 saves at Washington on Apr. 15, 2018 (5-4 OTW).
  • C Pierre-Luc Dubois notched 1-1-2 for the fourth multi-point effort of his playoffs career and second of the 2020 playoffs.  The center, who leads the club in goals and points during the 2020 playoffs, has posted all of his points over the last four contests (4-2-6).  His eight career playoff goals trail only RW Cam Atkinson for the most all-time in franchise history.  The third-year pivot collected 1-2-3 in the four-game sweep against the Lightning in the 2019 ECQF.
  • D Seth Jones set a single-game club record and NHL record for minutes played in a single game (65:06), surpassing Dallas’ Sergei Zubov 63:51 recorded on Apr. 23, 2003 vs. Anaheim in (TOI kept since 1998-99).  He added his second assist and third point of the playoffs with a first period goal.  He had 2-2-4 in four playoff games against the Lightning in the 2019 ECQF.
  • RW Oliver Bjorkstrand tallied his first goal of the 2020 postseason.  He had 2-2-4 in the 2019 ECQF vs. the Lightning, including the GWG in Game 3 and series clincher in Game 4.
  • LW Alexandre Texier tied for the club lead with his third assist of the postseason.  All three assists have come in the last four games.  He now has 2-2-4 in five career playoff contests against the Bolts.
  • D Dean Kukan collected his first career Stanley Cup Playoffs assist with the secondary helper on Bjorkstrand’s second period goal.
