Tampa Bay ratchets up the pressure in the third period, but loses 4-1 to fall behind 1-0 in the series.
Joel Hanley had never scored a goal in the NHL until Game 1 of the Stanley Cup for the Dallas Stars. Just another unlikely scorer this postseason for the Stars, like rookie Joel Kiviranta. “That’s how you win in the playoffs. You rely on your top-end guys to get you some offense or get you some chances, then you rely on some guys that have to step up every now and then and score some huge goal for us,” interim head coach Rick Bowness said. “All of a sudden, they’re jumping up and making you a better team.” Hanley scored the first goal in this unusual Stanley Cup, and Kiviranta gave the Stars a two-goal advantage in the second period on way to a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lighting inside the NHL bubble in Edmonton on Saturday night. Even Hanley would have never scripted his first goal coming on the biggest stage. “Definitely not,” Hanley said. “Obviously it’s something you dream about when you’re like young and stuff. Just cool to be able to contribute with a goal like that. Pretty cool to be in the finals, too.” A 29-year-old defenseman, Hanley has played 46 regular-season games for three teams over the past five seasons, never putting a puck in the net. That changed 5:40 into the Stars' first Stanley Cup Final game since 2000 when he scored off a feed from Roope Hintz, who collected the puck after it was dislodged by Kiviranta’s hit on Brayden Point. “I just tried to pick a corner and shoot as hard as I could, and it was lucky enough to go in," Hanley said. Hanley had played only eight regular season games and didn't get into the postseason until Game 7 in the second round against Colorado. That was the same game where Kiviranta had a hat trick, including the series-clinching goal in overtime. Kiviranta had scored only once in 11...
