NHL Network presents: Game 1 2011 ECQF: Capitals vs. Rangers
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs -- from every jaw-dropping goal to every highlight-reel save to every crushing defeat.
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs -- from every jaw-dropping goal to every highlight-reel save to every crushing defeat.

Each game of the postseason -- spanning the more than two-month period from the opening round to Boston's Game 7 clincher of the Stanley Cup Final -- will be shown on the Network throughout the offseason.

Fans can tune in at 8 p.m. ET nightly for a different game -- and different chance to re-live history. A complete program schedule can be found on NHLNetwork.com.



Looking to make a strong start in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs after 2010's first round disappointment against eighth-seeded Montreal in seven games, the Eastern Conference-best Capitals turned to rookie goaltender Michal Neuvirth in Game 1 of their quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers.  

While Neuvirth was sharp in stopping 24 New York shots, it came down to a pair of Alexanders -- Ovechkin and Semin --  to give Washington a 2-1 overtime victory and 1-0 series lead. Despite Washington missing on a few key scoring chances in the game, Alex Ovechkin erased a 1-0 deficit with a late third period wrister to force overtime.  Then, 18:24 into the extra period, Alexander Semin ended a 15-game-long playoff goal drought with a rocket of a shot that gave Washington the playoff opener they craved.
