EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- - Corey Perry scored to give the Dallas Stars a 1-0 lead on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night as they try to avoid elimination. Perry's goal with 2:08 left gave the Stars a boost of confidence against the Lightning, who lead the series 3-1. Tampa Bay last won it in 2004.
The Detroit Red Wings added a 2021 draft pick and a veteran defenseman who can plug a hole in 2020-21 in their trade with the New York Rangers.
The Detroit Red Wings acquired defenseman Marc Staal and a second-round draft pick from the New York Rangers for future considerations Saturday. The 33-year-old Staal had two goals and nine assists in 52 games this past season. ''Marc Staal has been an exemplary hockey player, teammate and person from the moment he joined the New York Rangers organization,'' Rangers President John Davidson said.
The Tampa Bay Lightning, holding a 3-1 series lead against the Dallas Stars, are in position to capture their first Stanley Cup since 2004
The Dallas Stars have been inside the NHL bubble in Edmonton for two months, staying in a hotel connected to the arena. Tampa Bay's only trip since this unusual postseason began was traveling 1,700 miles from the East hub in Toronto before both conference finals and the Stanley Cup Final were played on the same ice. Other than Tampa Bay's flight west three weeks ago, the movements of players this postseason can easily be calculated by fitness trackers instead of odometers.
We get you ready for Game 5 of the 2020 Stanley Cup Final where the Tampa Bay Lightning look to win the series against the Dallas Stars.

Sam Gagner, 31, is a quality veteran who can mentor youngsters. The Detroit Red Wings will keep him around for one more season.
When Joel Kiviranta capped a hat trick by scoring the series-clinching goal in overtime in his playoff debut in the second round, the young Finn had one real desire. ''I hope I get more games,'' Kiviranta said. Kiviranta hasn't come out of the Dallas Stars lineup since, and he's emblematic of the impact a player can have in the fight for the Stanley Cup after practicing but not playing for weeks on end.
After Tampa beat Dallas in OT Friday, it's right back for Game 5 on Saturday, in just the second final with a back-to-back since the mid-1950s.
As the Dallas Stars celebrated the tying goal with 8:25 remaining in the third period, Kevin Shattenkirk was experiencing a sinking feeling. Joe Pavelski’s shot from the faceoff circle was stopped by Andrei Vasilevskiy, but the puck deflected off Shattenkirk’s knee and into the Tampa Bay Lightning net.

Kevin Shattenkirk scored the game winner at 6:34 of overtime to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-4 victory over the Dallas Stars in game four of the Stanley Cup finals on Friday.
No U.S.-born player has scored more playoff goals than Joe Pavelski. Pavelski scored twice, including the tying goal midway through the third period, but the Stars lost 5-4 when Tampa Bay scored on a power play 6:34 into overtime of Game 4 on Friday night inside the NHL bubble in Edmonton. Tampa Bay's third power-play goal of the game was set up after a disputable tripping penalty called against Stars captain Jamie Benn.
Kevin Shattenkirk will never forget having his contract bought out in the summer of 2019 and joining the Tampa Bay Lightning because he felt their core players had a similar chip on their shoulders after a shocking first-round exit. More than a year later, he created a moment to remember to put the Lightning on the verge of making good on years of unfulfilled potential. Shattenkirk scored a power-play goal in overtime after a questionable penalty, and the Lightning beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 Friday night to take a 3-1 lead in the final and move a victory away from lifting the Stanley Cup.
