The Dallas Stars Take Game One Of The Stanley Cup Final

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Too many Joels, and not enough juice from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning looked like a team still tired from closing out their conference final just two days earlier, and the Dallas Stars took advantage with a 4-1 victory to take Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

It was two Stars named Joel — Kiviranta and Hanley — who did the damage, sandwiching goals around one by Jamie Oleksiak in the win. Yanni Gourde had the only tally for Tampa.

While Kiviranta continued his playoff emergence with his fifth goal, it was the little-known fill-in Hanley with not just his first playoff goal to open the scoring, but his first NHL goal — period.
