"Captain America" reigns supreme.

Joe Pavelski's tying goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final puts him solely in first place on the all-time list of American playoff scorers.

The Dallas Stars forward's late equalizer, his second in as many nights, was his 61st postseason marker in 160 career playoff games. He passed Joe Mullen, who netted 60 in 143 playoff contests.

Pavelski chose Stars over Lightning due to goalies, defensive structure

  Pavelski chose Stars over Lightning due to goalies, defensive structure Joe Pavelski says the Dallas Stars' style of play was a major reason he signed with them instead of the Tampa Bay Lightning in free agency last summer. "I liked the goalies here," Pavelski told reporters Friday. "I liked the structure defensively. They played a lot of one-goal games (and) they didn't give up a lot of goals, and I always believe you need that, especially in the playoffs, to find those types of wins.

Pavelski eclipsed Mike Modano's total of 58 and tied Mullen with a pair of goals during the Stars' overtime loss in Game 4 on Friday. The 36-year-old replied, "Keep it, next question," when asked about the record following the defeat.

The veteran forward still had other priorities on his mind after Dallas' 3-2 double-overtime victory Saturday.

Pavelski's 13th goal of the 2019-20 postseason ties Lightning star Brayden Point for the NHL lead - though Pavelski has played four more contests.

Game 6 is scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
