NHL Network presents: Game 2 2011 ECQF: Sabres vs. Flyers
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. NHL Network presents: Game 2 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.


After a brilliant performance by Ryan Miller stymied the Flyers' offense in Game 1, Philadelphia was in desperate need of a strong showing in Game 2, on both ends of the ice, to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole before heading to western New York. While Buffalo edged Philly in Game 1, the Sabres knew they needed to convert on more chances in the Flyers' zone in order to seize command in the best-of-seven series.

Both teams came out with a purpose offensively in the first period of Game 2, as Buffalo and Philadelphia scored three times apiece in the opening 13:14 of the contest. Then, with the game tied 3-3 in the second, the Flyers reeled off two important goals in just under two minutes, courtesy of tallies by Ville Leino and former Sabre Danny Briere.

Backup goaltender Brian Boucher, who relieved Sergei Bobrovsky after he allowed 3 goals on 7 Buffalo shots in the first period, provided much-needed stability in the crease for the rest of the night. Boucher stole the show by stopping 20 of 21 shots, as Philly rallied to even the series, 1-1.
