Korpisalo, Blue Jackets win 3-1, tie series with Lightning

TORONTO (AP) Two days after making an NHL-record 85 saves in a five-overtime loss, Joonas Korpisalo stopped 36 more shots to help the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 on Thursday to even the series at a game apiece.

Ryan Murray and Oliver Bjorkstrand scored in the first period for Columbus, both goals set up by Pierre-Luc Dubois. Alexander Wennberg added another in the third.

"We've all seen him play this past season," Dubois said about Korpisalo. "He's an All-Star, then he gets injured and then he comes back. Another break (for the coronavirus), but we all know what he's capable of. We all know in the dressing room that he's one of the best goalies in the NHL, and he's feeling really good right now."
