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.


An exhilarating series would reach its pinnacle on this night, as Philadelphia hosted Game 7 of the East Quarterfinals against Buffalo. Ryan Miller had flashes of brilliance in the series, as did the Flyers' potent offense. Buffalo had won two of three in Philadelphia, and Philly's goaltending situation was far from stable. So many storylines surrounded this matchup, but one thing remained certain: the Flyers would do all they could to protect home ice in the final game of this first round series.

With each team looking for an ice-breaking goal in the first period, Philadelphia got a spark from defenseman Braydon Coburn, who opened the scoring with only 19 seconds left in the opening period. Brian Boucher, who got the call in Game 7, finished the job from there as the Philadelphia offense picked up full steam. Boucher stopped 26 of 28 shots on the evening, and the Flyers chased Ryan Miller after Danny Briere, James van Riemsdyk and Ville Leino found the back of the net to make it 4-0 in their favor.

Philadelphia went on to earn a convincing 5-2 triumph in Game 7 to oust Buffalo and advance to the Eastern Conference Semifinals for the second straight year.
