The Cinderella story of the Dallas Stars winning the Stanley Cup is coming closer and closer to fruition after their dominant 4-1 Game 1 performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Stars drew first blood with Joel Hanley scoring the first goal of the Series while the Lightning tried to get out of their own way. Period 2 was where the Stars really took control, slashing two goals past Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy to gain a real advantage before shutting them down in period 3 en-route to victory.
Despite the dominant win, we’re siding with the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 2. We’ll chalk the Game 1 loss up to some butterflies in being in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Lightning fought a VERY good New York Islanders team off in the Eastern Conference Finals and are a much better team than they showed against the Stars on Saturday night. If they are going to turn the tables on the Stars, they’re going to have to take full advantage of their power plays, something they struggled with against the Islanders despite fending them off in their last series. That chink in their armor came back to haunt them again in Game 1 against Dallas as they squandered multiple power play opportunities down the stretch.
