The Tampa Bay Lightning's Stanley Cup Playoffs run began with their First Round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets and an epic six-hour, quintuple overtime contest – the fourth longest game in League history. Brayden Point scored the game-winning goal in both the first and fifth game of the series to eliminate the Blue Jackets. Facing the Boston Bruins in the Second Round, the Lightning rebounded from a loss in the first game to win the next four games including Game 5, where Victor Hedman scored the game winner in double overtime to send Tampa Bay to the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Islanders. The Lightning beat the Islanders in six games to advance to the Stanley Cup Final - for the second time in six seasons – to face the Western Conference champion Dallas Stars. Game three featured captain Steven Stamkos's triumphant return to the ice for his first game since February. After two more overtime games in the fourth and fifth game of the series, the Lightning defeated the Stars in six games to bring home the Stanley Cup for the second time in franchise history.
