EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) After a very un-Dallas Stars-like first overtime period in which they sat back and let the Tampa Bay Lightning take it to them, players and coaches in the locker room had a very distinct message.

The plucky Stars are embracing the underdog role missing several key players to injury and feel as if they're playing with house money, while the deep, talented Lightning still feel like the favorites up 3-2 in the series and are confident based on recent experience they'll be able to close the series out in their next opportunity.
