The 2020 Stanley Cup Final is tied at 1-1, and the Tampa Bay Lightning have a chance to take the driver's seat tonight. The Lightning are coming off a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars in Game 2 Monday night. Brayden Point, Ondrej Palat and Kevin Shattenkirk all scored in the first period and the Bolts held off a late Stars rally.
It’s the Dallas Stars. Anything can happen, for better and otherwise. So is a 1-1 Stanley Cup Final series a fair representation of what they can do?
With 76 seconds left in a game last round and the Dallas Stars clinging to a one-goal lead, Tyler Seguin laid out in front of a slap shot to block it and help preserve a victory. It was one of those plays that showed the other things Seguin is doing when not putting up points, and interim coach Rick Bowness is correct that the team wouldn't be in the Stanley Cup Final without the 28-year-old center. Yes,'' Bowness said, adding he'd like more from other players, too.
