Lightning beat Stars 3-2 in Game 2, get even in Stanley Cup

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

After the Lightning got knocked around in Game 1, and Kucherov took some more hard hits early in Game 2, he had the primary assists on power-play goals by Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat in the first period. 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."
