The Tampa Bay Lightning are in position to capture their first Stanley Cup since 2004 as they play the Dallas Stars in Game 5 Saturday night in the Edmonton, Alberta, bubble.
A win would give them hockey's biggest prize one year that were part of one of hockey's biggest upsets, swept in the first round by the Columbus Blue Jackets after a record-tying 62-win season.
The Lightning took a 3-1 series lead Friday night when Kevin Shattenkirk scored at 6:34 of overtime.
Both teams will have little time to prepare. The NHL has scheduled the first back-to-back nights in the championship round since 2009.
