At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Dallas Stars.  Game 5 of this Stanley Cup Finals was one for the ages.  With their backs against the wall, the Stars somehow managed to survive yet again despite being out-shot and out-played by the Lightning.  And once they were able to get the game into overtime, they seemed to be energized to a different level.  Dallas prevailed 9:23 into the second overtime period on the second goal of the game by Corey Perry to stay alive and take this series to a sixth game.  Like he has done much of these Playoffs, the Stars' goalie Anton Khodobin kept them in the game and you have to wonder if he has it in him to do it again.  While this is a 3-2 series, the games really haven't been that close.  The Bolts have out-shot the Stars in all five of the games, and they hold a cumulative advantage in that category of 175 to 135.  Tampa is 64-25 (+25 games on the moneyline) in its last 56 immediately following a loss.  Look for the Lightning to wrap up their second Stanley Cup Championship tonight.  Take the Bolts.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
