Stanley Cup Final

NHL Network presents: Game 3 2011 ECSF: Lightning vs. Capitals

Wednesday, 08.17.2011 / 12:01 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

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 6 p.m. and 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 two impressive showings on the road in Washington, D.C., the Tampa Bay Lightning stormed into the St. Pete Times Forum hoping to carry over the momentum and stretch their series lead to 3-0. On the other hand, the Washington Capitals were in desperation mode, hoping to find a spark on the road to revive their chase for the Stanley Cup.

After Sean Bergenheim scored the game's opening goal for the second time in the series, Washington showed a sense of urgency in the second period by scoring twice to grab the lead. Mike Knuble and John Carlson accounted for the first two goals, and after Alex Ovechkin added another later in the period, Washington was sitting pretty with a 3-2 lead entering the final stanza.

But as they did all series long, the Bolts rose to the occasion again as Steven Stamkos blasted a wrister past Michal Neuvirth to tie the game. Then just 24 seconds later, Ryan Malone tipped in the go-ahead goal to turn the tide in the contest. The rest was a formality, as Tampa Bay pulled out a 4-3 come-from-behind victory to take a commanding 3-0 series lead over the East's top seed.
