At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Dallas Stars.  After getting pushed around pretty bad in Game 1, the Tampa Bay Lightning made some adjustments before Game 2.  Those adjustments paid off as Tampa built a 3-0 in the first period and was able to hold on for a 3-2 victory that evened this series at a game apiece.  Tampa achieved two important things in the process of winning Game 2.  First, unlike Game 1, the Bolts didn't let the Stars dictate the game with their physical play.  And it seemed like every time one of Dallas' physical players -- and there are quite a few of them -- hit someone, they got hit back.  Second, the Lightning were able to get to Stars' goalie Anton Khudobin early and often in building that 3-0 lead, and that could turn out to be the key to this series.  It also won't hurt that Dallas suffered a key injury on Monday night, with Blake Comeau leaving the game in the 2nd period.  The Stars generally have not responded well to close losses.  In their last 52 games following a defeat by one goal, the Stars are 25-27 (-7 games on the moneyline).  Take the Lightning.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
