Board 4: Schmakel - Thompson 1-0

Between moves 20 and 25, Sam transforms an equalish middlegame into a battle between good knight and bad bishop. The price of winning a pawn on the queenside is submitting to an attack on the kingside. Sam consolidates, then finds a monster shot on move 40. Can you find the winning move for White in the diagram below?

I suppose this is an acceptable début for Sam in the U.S. Chess League.
