ICYMI: NHL Morning Skate, Stanley Cup Playoffs Edition for Wednesday, August 12; Blue Jackets and Lightning play lengthiest game in league history

THREE HARD LAPS

* Brayden Point scored the quintuple-overtime winner to lift the Lightning past the Blue Jackets in the fourth-longest game in NHL history.

* Columbus goaltender Joonas Korpisalo made 85 saves – that’s correct, 85 saves – to eclipse Kelly Hrudey’s 73 from the “Easter Epic” for the highest single-game total since 1955-56.

* Due to the length of the Lightning-Blue Jackets contest, Game 1 between the Bruins and Hurricanes – originally scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET Tuesday – was rescheduled for 11:00 a.m. ET today.

LIGHTNING OUTLAST BLUE JACKETS IN FOURTH-LONGEST GAME IN NHL HISTORY
Brayden Point (2-0—2) scored the winner at 10:27 of the fifth overtime to lift the Lightning past the Blue Jackets, capping the lengthiest game ever contested by either franchise.

* Game 1 between Tampa Bay and Columbus, which featured 150:27 of total game time, was the fourth-longest in NHL history. It fell shy of Game 1 of the 1936 Semifinals between the Red Wings and Maroons (176:30), Game 5 of the 1933 Semifinals between the Maple Leafs and Bruins (164:46) and Game 4 of the 2000 Conference Semifinals between the Flyers and Penguins (152:01).

* Point, who ended the contest six hours and 13 minutes after it began, became the fifth player in NHL history to score the winner in a game which required five or more overtimes. He joined Red Wings forward Mud Bruneteau (Game 1 of 1936 SF), Maple Leafs forward Ken Doraty (Game 5 of 1933 SF), Flyers forward Keith Primeau (Game 4 of 2000 CSF) and Ducks forward Petr Sykora (Game 1 of 2003 CSF).

* Point, who potted his first career playoff overtime goal, became the third different player in franchise history to score the winner in a contest which required multiple overtimes. Nikita Kucherov (0-2—2), who assisted on the winner by Point, was the last Lightning player to do so before Tuesday.

TAMPA BAY, COLUMBUS COMBINE FOR SEVERAL FRANCHISE, NHL RECORDS
Per Records.NHL.com, the Lightning and Blue Jackets combined for several franchise and NHL benchmarks in both the player and team categories:

* Blue Jackets goaltender Joonas Korpisalo turned aside 85 of the Lightning’s 88 shots, which marked the NHL’s highest single-game save total since 1955-56. The previous mark of 73 was set by Islanders goaltender Kelly Hrudey in the “Easter Epic,” Game 7 of the 1987 Division Semifinals.

* Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy made 61 saves to establish a franchise record for most in a game, besting the previous mark of 60 set by Nikolai Khabibulin in Game 6 of the 2003 Conference Quarterfinals.

* Tampa Bay’s 88 shots on goal were the highest single-game total by a team, 12 more than Dallas’ 76 in Game 1 of the 2007 Conference Quarterfinals. The Lightning and Blue Jackets – who logged a franchise-record 63 shots on goal – combined for a total of 151 shots on goal.

Did You Know? Prior to shots on goal becoming an official NHL statistic, select games logged them – creating incomplete SOG data for those campaigns. One of those games happened to be the longest in NHL history, between the Montreal Maroons and Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the 1936 Semifinals when Red Wings goaltender Normie Smith was credited with 90 saves.

* Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones logged 65:06 of ice time, the NHL’s highest single-game total by a skater since 1997-98 when time on ice was officially tracked. He eclipsed the mark of 63:51 set by Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov in Game 1 of the 2003 Conference Semifinals. Overall, skaters from Game 1 between Tampa Bay and Columbus now account for three of the top eight single-game totals on record.

FLAMES, GOLDEN KNIGHTS WIN WESTERN CONFERENCE OPENERS
* The Stars set a franchise record with two goals in a span of nine seconds to erase a 2-0 deficit, but Rasmus Andersson scored five minutes later to put the Flames ahead en route to a Game 1 victory. Andersson and Dillon Dube (2-0—2) each scored in consecutive games for the first time in their NHL careers. Dube, 22, became the seventh different Flames player to post a multi-goal game in the playoffs before age 23; teammate Matthew Tkachuk (Game 1 of 2019 R1 vs. COL) is the only other to so in the last 26 years.


Reilly Smith collected 2-1—3 to help the Golden Knights take a 1-0 lead in their First Round series. Smith, who is Vegas’ all-time leader in postseason points with 33 (8-25—33 in 31 GP), has 6-6—12 in nine games versus Chicago since the start of the Golden Knights’ inaugural season in 2017-18 (1.33 P/GP). Robin Lehner made 19 saves against his former club and has earned wins in all six appearances since being acquired by Vegas at the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline (3-0-0 in regular season, 3-0 in playoffs).

PREVIEW OF TODAY’S ACTION
The second day of the First Round will get an early start, with the Bruins and Hurricanes squaring off at 11 a.m. ET after their game – which was previewed in the Aug. 11 Morning Skate – was rescheduled due to the five-overtime game.

* Teams that win Game 1 in a best-of-seven series hold an all-time series record of 478-219 (68.6%).
