EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) More than a decade since Corey Perry won the Stanley Cup as a young player and years after Joe Pavelski fell two wins short, the greybeards aren't ready to leave the bubble and give up on another opportunity for a championship just yet.

After the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Dallas Stars in overtime Friday night, it's right back for Game 5 on Saturday night in just the second final with a back-to-back since the mid-1950s. While it was Games 1 and 2 for Bylsma's Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings, the scheduling could mark a turning point this year because the banged-up Lightning might need to close this out fast.
