NHL Network presents: Game 1 2011 ECQF: Sabres vs. Flyers
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. NHL Network presents: Game 1 2011 ECQF: Sabres vs. Flyers.
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.


A year removed from an epic run to the Stanley Cup Final, the Philadelphia Flyers battled through a rough end to the regular season and secured the East's No. 2 seed. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Sabres stormed into the postseason as one of the League's hottest teams, earning at least a point in 20 of their last 24 games.

Danny Briere was set to face his former team for the first time in the playoffs since leaving Buffalo in 2006-07, as the Flyers and Sabres kicked off their playoff series in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

While both teams had their fair share of chances in the first two periods, goaltenders Sergei Bobrovsky and Ryan Miller stood tall and kept the game scoreless heading into the final stanza. Searching for a spark, Buffalo opened the scoring 5:56 into the third period when Patrick Kaleta tapped in a rebound to give Miller all the offense he would need on this day.

Miller, Briere's former teammate in Buffalo, silenced the orange-clad Wells Fargo Center crowd by stopping all 35 shots in a 1-0 road victory for the Sabres in Game 1.
