    The 2019-20 season could officially come to an end Saturday night. It has been more than 365 days since training camp and preseason games got underway, and now the Lightning are one win away from putting the final stamp on the season and win the Stanley Cup. Tampa Bay took a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with a 5-4 overtime win in Game 4 less than 24 hours ago on a Kevin Shattenkirk power-play goal.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Kevin Shattenkirk scored in overtime on a controversial power play, Brayden Point had two goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 Friday night to take a 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final and move to the cusp of winning the title. With Game 5 Saturday night, Tampa Bay is potentially 24 hours away from its second championship in franchise history.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Patric Hornqvist’s grit helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win a pair of Stanley Cups. To keep their championship window opened, they decided it was time to move on without him. The Penguins traded the 33-year-old forward to Florida on Thursday in exchange for Mike Matheson and forward Colton Sceviour. Hornqvist spent six seasons in Pittsburgh after being acquired in a 2014 trade that sent James Neal to Nashville. Known for his hard-nosed play around the net, Hornqvist scored 132 goals in 407 games for the Penguins and added 22 more in the playoffs, including 14 during Pittsburgh’s run to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017. Hornqvist dealt with health issues — including concussions — near the...

    It’s been almost seven months to the day since Steven Stamkos played an NHL game. That’s 212 days since he stickhandled through defenses and shot the puck on another team’s goalie.  On Wednesday night, the Lightning’s captain returned to the lineup with the kind of flourish typical of his superstar status. Less than 90 seconds after Nikita Kucherov gave Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead, Stamkos scored on his first shot to give his squad a 2-0 lead in the all-important Game 3 of a knotted-up Stanley Cup Final. Skating through the neutral zone, Stamkos avoided the check by Esa Lindell at the Stars bench, glided into the right circle and went top corner past netminder Anton Khudobin.

    The Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos scored a goal in his first game of the entire 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. In every Tampa Bay Lightning press conference throughout the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, head coach Jon Cooper was asked one question ad nauseam: “when is Steven Stamkos going to return from injury?” That question was met with a noncommittal comment by Cooper. Well, those reporters finally received their answer on Wednesday night. Stamkos was activated for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Dallas Stars, his very first game since Feb. 25 after picking up a core muscle injury. And what a return he had. With a 1-0 lead in the first period, Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman...

    The Tampa Bay Lightning’s captain has yet to suit up in bubble hockey. Now his team is one of the last two vying for the Stanley Cup. Stamkos posted 66 points (29 goals, 37 assists) in 57 games during the 2019-20 truncated season. In 70 career playoff games, he’s collected 23 goals and 30 assists — including 18 points when the Lightning last played in the Stanley Cup Final back in 2015. If he can play, he’ll bring a much-needed offensive boost not only to the lineup, but also the Lightning’s struggling power play that has dropped from 23.1 percent efficiency during the regular season to 19.1 in the postseason.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — When Ron Francis knew something was working on faceoffs, he would experiment and not use his best moves right away. That was usually during the regular season. In the playoffs and in the Stanley Cup Final, the Hall of Fame center knows players can’t afford not to go all out to win them. “They’ve become more and more key as the games become more and more important,” said Francis, now the general manager of the NHL’s expansion Seattle Kraken. “In its simplest form, if you win the puck, you have possession. You start with possession and then you’re automatically on offense. If you lose the draw, now you’re on defense and you’ve got to go hunt...

But with Seguin now up to an 11-game goal drought that matches the longest of his playoff career, the Stars need him to produce against Tampa Bay in a final tied 1-1 and heating up. “Do we need more from...

    EDMONTON, Alberta (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas Stars may not have to worry about ‘high voltage’ preventing them from winning the finals.

    If this was a tweet, it would literally just say: Anton Khudobin. Because that’s it, that’s the story. Yes, the Stars had goals from depth players like Joel Hanley and Joel Kiviranta, but when you’re facing a high-powered team like the Lightning in the Stanley Cup Final, you need your goaltender to be at the top of his game. And Khudobin was as he backstopped Dallas to a 4-1 Game 1 victory on Saturday. “He’s been a rock for us all playoffs,” said Blake Comeau, who had an assist on Jason Dickinson’s empty-netter late in the third. “It was no different tonight and we obviously got into a little bit of penalty trouble there in the third. He was there to bail us out...
