The Bolts will be heading to Game Seven thanks to a come-from-behind, overtime victory in Game Six over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Toronto held a 3-2 lead midway through the third period until two high-sticking penalties were called back to back, giving Tampa a 5-3 power play.

Bolts’ Nikita Kucherov tied it late, and Brayden Point, won it in the overtime, 4-3 win, and forced Game 7 in Toronto on Saturday.
