The Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars are set to meet in game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals as they will meet at Rogers Place in the Edmonton, Canada bubble. The Tampa Bay Lightning come into this matchup with a 2-1 series lead after they beat the Dallas Stars in game 3, 5-2. The usual stars had a productive game for the Tampa Bay Lightning as Victor Hedman had 1 goal and 2 assists while Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov both had 1 goal and 1 assist, but the most pleasant sign was the scoring of Steven Stamkos in his 1st game back. The Tampa Bay Lightning edged out the Dallas Stars in the shot department (32-24), but they were edged out in the faceoff circle (26-21).

The Tampa Bay Lightning were solid at keeping the Dallas Stars off the scoreboard as they held them to 2 goals on 24 shots. The Lightning starting goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy had a productive game in the crease as he recorded 22 saves which pushed his postseason save percentage to .928 and GAA to 1.89.

The Dallas Stars come into this matchup looking for some answers after being dominated on both sides of the ice by the Tampa Bay Lightning as they were unable to stop their powerful scoring attack. The Dallas Stars were able to receive scoring from Jason Dickinson and Miro Heiskanen while Joe Pavelski recorded an assist. The Dallas Stars struggled to get anything going on the powerplay as they went 0 for 4 while also allowing the Tampa Bay Lightning to score a powerplay goal.

The Dallas Stars struggled to keep the Tampa Bay Lightning off the scoreboard as they allowed them to score 5 goals on 32 shots. The Stars starting goaltender Anton Khudobin struggled in the crease as he recorded 24 saves which pushed his postseason save percentage to .918 and GAA to 2.72.

Tampa Bay Lightning -160

The Tampa Bay Lightning have picked up their game after a slow start as they have won the last 2 games, and they have got their scoring attack going with 8 total goals over those games. The Tampa Bay Lightning received back the services of Steven Stamkos which is big considering he is a deadly offensive weapon which adds to Hedman, Point, and Kucherov. Anton Khudobin hasn’t been great for the Dallas Stars this postseason as he is allowing 2.72 goals per game, and the Dallas Stars won’t have any success in this series if he can’t play a close to perfect game. Tampa Bay is solid on both sides of the ice with a good goaltender, and I think they pull away with the series and go up 3-1. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 4-3.
