The Stars just keep on rolling. Dallas has taken a 1-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Finals after winning game one 4-1 on Saturday night. Nonetheless, Rick Bowness’ team is the underdog heading into game two.
Tampa Bay is still struggling on the offensive end of the ice, but they also had an uncharacteristic performance from their defense in game one in allowing 4+ goals for just the second time in the last 11 games.
Dallas once again rode their red hot goaltender Anton Khudobin to a game one victory. The Stars net minder stopped 22 SOG in the 3rd period alone to notch his sixth win in the last seven games.
Khubodin has now held opponents to 2 goals or less in five of his last six. What’s impressive is the number of shots the Dallas goaltender is turning away, facing 33+ SOG in each of the last four games.
Does Dallas have value yet again as a +130 underdog? The Stars are getting contributions from everywhere as Joel Hanley opened up scoring in game one with his first career goal.
Tampa Bay Lightning
It’s no secret where Tampa Bay is struggling and that’s on the offensive end of the ice. The Lightning have now been held to 4 goals over their last three games and while taking 37, 48, and 36 shots.
The Lightning need help from somebody other than Victor Hedman who has two of the four goals for Tampa Bay over the last three. Nikita Kucherov has turned into a non-factor on a current 5-game goalless streak.
The Lightning could also use a bounce back game from Andrei Vasilevskiy who allowed 3 goals on just 19 shots on Saturday. It was just the 2nd time Vasilevskiy allowed more than 2 goals in the last 10 games.
