Another record has fallen.

Less than a week after Joonas Korpisalo and Seth Jones etched their names in the record book for saves and ice time, Pierre-Luc Dubois has tied another mark.

Dubois recorded an assist on Oliver Bjorkstrand's third-period goal to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-2 lead on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Wednesday's Game 5. It was his 10th point of the playoffs, good enough for a tie (Matt Duchene, 2019) for second-most points in the postseason in club history, and his sixth assist, which ties him with the most helpers in a playoff run.

Dubois recorded four goals and six assists in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which are both team highs.

The Blue Jackets would go on to lose to the Lightning in overtime of Game 5, but the 22-year-old former No. 3 overall pick put on a show in the postseason, putting the league on notice. He had 18 goals and 31 assists in the regular season as a third-year NHL player.
