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.
Having gone goalless in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara got his team off to a fast start in Game 3 against the Flyers. Chara scored 30 seconds into the game and David Krejci added to the Boston lead just 33 seconds later, sparking an offensive outburst that allowed the Bruins to cruise to a 5-1 victory. Chara sealed the victory with his second of the game, the Bruins’ final goal of the contest and their first power-play marker of the postseason.
With a generous offensive cushion to work with, Tim Thomas continued his stellar play in the series with a 37-save performance. With another strong game between the pipes, Thomas posted a .950 save percentage through the first three games of the series. A 3-0 series lead would seem insurmountable under other circumstances, but not so in this case, considering the Flyers’ comeback against Boston in 2010 from a similar 3-0 deficit.
