Lightning look to extend lead over Stars in Game 4

The Tampa Bay Lightning have found their mojo in time to take control of the Stanley Cup Final. The onus is on the Dallas Stars to counterpunch against the Lightning attack when they meet in Friday's Game 4 of the championship series that Tampa Bay leads 2-1.

Thanks to Wednesday's 5-2 shootout victory in Game 3 in Edmonton -- a score which flattered the Stars -- the Lightning have a golden chance to be on the verge of the franchise's second Cup title. Game 5 will be Saturday night, putting the series into high speed.

In short, the Stars had best develop an answer to the Lightning attack or the series could be completed in a hurry.
