Dallas Stars Vs Tampa Bay Lightning Game Day Preview
One game is all that separates the Stanley Cup from the Tampa Bay Lightning.
With a 3-1 lead over the Dallas Stars in the final series, the Lightning have their first chance to clinch the second Cup in franchise history when the puck drops for Game 5 Saturday night in Edmonton.
The Stars must find an answer that matches the high-octane Tampa Bay Lightning and they need to do it fast. Last night’s OT loss was suspect as a controversial penalty went against them leading to the Kevin Shattenkirk game winner.
“I have full faith in that team that we will fight back. We will bounce back,” Dallas coach Rick Bowness stated. However, what do you expect him to say? His team does not have an alternative so we expect to come out swinging tonight.
“(We must) move on from this pretty quickly, get ready to play a game with our season on the line,” forward Tyler Seguin said in the aftermath of Friday’s loss. “I’m excited.”
Seguin’s performance last night was positive as he collected a pair of assists. However, leading up to tonight it is time for him to put the puck in the net. The Dallas Stars highest paid player hasn’t scored in 13 consecutive games.
For Game 5, in Dallas is going to extend the series their special teams must take a big step forward. The Stars are a miserable 1-for-14 on the power play in the finals.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Since losing the series opener, Tampa Bay has won three straight, with the latest a 5-4 overtime win last night, and is simply dominating!
“We’ve got a job to do here. It’s still not finished,” said defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, who netted the winning goal in Friday’s victory to give the Lightning a stranglehold on the best-of-seven affair.
History is on the Lightning’s side in a big way. Teams that have won Game 4 to take a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven Cup finals since the NHL went to that format in 1939 are 27-0 at closing out the series.
