Open Post- Game 5 Of The Stanley Cup Final Between The Tampa Bay Lightning And Dallas Stars

Possibly the last game of the NHL season.  Tampa Bay leads the series 3-1 over Dallas and a win by the Lightning will make them the Stanley Cup Champions.

Puck drop just after 8:00pm ET on NBC, CBC, Sportsnet and TVAS.

Enjoy!

And we’re headed to a second OT.

Too many cute plays on both teams trying to get the pretty goal.

Dallas not interested in playing offense, just defense.

Every Tampa shot is wide, Mickael Samuelsson is smiling somewhere

I think there were just two SOGs for DAL that whole OT, Tre.

Second OT.  Here we go.

So many shooters on both teams want to go forehand for their shots when a backhand can be just as dangerous.

Really makes me miss Dangles.

Glad to see this go another game. I have only watched a few minutes of games here and there this post season but every Dallas game I’ve watched they look disinterested, tired, and unable to keep up. I just can’t understand how they’ve made it to the finals. Maybe I’ve seen their worst 4 games or so, but man it seems the other teams skate circles around the Stars.

I think they play a patient game when they know teams can outskate them - like Muhammad Ali and his rope-a-dope strategy.  It’s clever and it seems to work in DAL’s favor.

Well both Teams have ties to Detroit in the Coach-Manager areas.  Tampa is still Stevies baby, he deserves a lot of credit if they win the cup, I think they got the best chance.  The Stars are built by Nill who should of replaced Kenny in Detroit, but they are doing well.  They are built more like the Wings than the Bolts.  In fact as I watch the Stars its like watching an old Red Wing game.
