This was Point’s first goal of the playoffs this year. He’s provided several big goals for the Lightning during their back-to-back Stanley Cup runs. Point has 37 goals and 38 assists in 72 career playoff games.
The Lightning were down 3-2 to the Maple Leafs heading to the third period. Nikita Kucherov tied the game in the third period on the power play before Point won it in overtime.
The Maple Leafs fall to 0-9 in elimination games since 2013. They are trying to advance to the second round for the first time since 2004.
“We’ve just got to put our balls on the line and go for it,” Leafs forward Auston Matthews said postgame.
