EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Nikita Kucherov and the Tampa Bay Lightning got themselves up off the ice to get even in the Stanley Cup Final.

Kevin Shattenkirk then scored for an early three-goal lead and Tampa Bay held on for a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.

"It was a tough start I guess," Kucherov said. "It's the playoffs, you have to play, it doesn't matter what happened."
