Albuquerque Journal - - BUSINESS SERVICE DIRECTORY -

EDMONTON, Al­berta — Steven Stamkos scored on his first shot since Fe­bru­ary and the Tampa Bay Light­ning blew out the Dal­las Stars with a 5-2 rout in Game 3 of the Stan­ley Cup Fi­nal on Wed­nes­day night to take a 2-1 lead in the se­ries. Game 4 is Fri­day.

Stamkos, the Light­ning cap­tain, was mak­ing his 2020 play­off de­but 211 days af­ter he last played in an NHL game. He made the most of his lim­ited time with a vin­tage goal, go­ing around Esa Lin­dell and snip­ing a shot past An­ton Khu­dobin.

Tampa Bay got goals from all three of its first-line for­wards, while the Stars’ best play­ers were quiet once again or made big mis­takes to con­trib­ute to the loss.
