NHL: Jackets fall in overtime

COLUMBUS — Brayden Point scored 1:56 into overtime, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 for their third straight win to begin the season.

Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy and Joonas Korpisalo traded great saves in extra time before Point tapped in a pass from Victor Hedman. Blake Coleman and Mathieu Joseph also scored for the Stanley Cup champions, and Vasilevskiy had 23 saves.

Nick Foligno tied the game for the Blue Jackets 47 seconds into the third period. Oliver Bjorkstrand also scored and Korpisalo stopped 34 shots as the Blue Jackets slipped to 1-2-2.

Bjorkstrand scored the fastest goal in the history of the franchise, beating Vasilevskiy on the glove side just 21 seconds into the game. He got help from Max Domi, who stripped Hedman in the neutral zone and set up Bjorkstrand’s goal from the right circle.

Coleman responded 16:33 into the second period, getting an easy tip-in goal off a slot pass from Ryan McDonagh. Joseph beat Korpisalo with a one-timer from the slot 83 seconds later to give the Lightning their first lead of the night.

Foligno tied it again seven seconds into a power play when he redirected a Bjorkstrand shot.
