This series was born to go seven games. The Lightning somehow came out on the right side of the second straight complete roller coaster of a game. With the season on the line, Tampa Bay just once again found a way as Brayden Point came up with the overtime winner late in the first overtime period.
The season was on life support as Tampa Bay was outplayed for much of the game at 5-on-5. They took advantage of all the chances they had to fight another day and force a winner take all game seven on Saturday night.
