Seth Jones just wouldn't quit.
The top Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman played more minutes in a single game than anybody else in NHL history, whether in the regular season or postseason. Jones, in a first-round matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday, spent 65 minutes and six seconds on the ice during the 3-2 loss that took five overtimes to complete.
Jones had an assist and six shots on goal in the defeat.
Zach Werenski also cracked the 60-minute mark by playing 61:14. Not including goaltender Joonas Korpisalo, 11 Blue Jackets players were on the ice for at least 38:21, which was previously the most time on ice by a Columbus player in postseason history.
