The Blue Jackets and Lightning opened their series with a 3 p.m. puck drop, and we didn't have a winner until about 9:30 p.m. ET when Tampa Bay center Brayden Point scored in the fifth overtime for a 3-2 victory. The last playoff game to require five overtimes was a 2003 matchup between the Anaheim Ducks and Dallas Stars.
This game went so long that the league was forced to postpone Game 1 of the first round series between the Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes, which was supposed to be played at 8 p.m. ET at Scotiabank Arena.
Here's some of the best Twitter reaction to the quintuple overtime classic.
