EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Penalties continue to hurt the Dallas Stars, and the Tampa Bay Lightning's power play keeps making them pay in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Lightning led the Stars 1-0 after the first period of Game 6 of the final Monday night on Brayden Point's power-play goal. They were 40 minutes away from the second championship in franchise history.

Point was set up by Nikita Kucherov and Victor Hedman on the goal 12:23 into the game. Those three have been indisputably the Lightning's best skaters in the playoffs.
