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.
Much like the previous games in the series, Game 5 was another back-and-forth affair with both clubs trading goals throughout the first three periods, with Shea Weber's tally late in the third forcing overtime. But it was a bunch of unlikely Predator contributors that would eventually be the difference makers in this game. Defenseman Kevin Klein got the scoring going for Nashville with his first and only playoff goal of his career. Then, after the teams traded goals and ended regulation tied at three, it would be center Jerred Smithson who would emerge as probably the biggest hero in franchise history as his wrister with just under two minutes into overtime beat Anaheim goalie Ray Emery and gave the Predators a 4-3 win and a 3-2 advantage in the series. Smithson finished the 2011 postseason with 31 career games in the playoffs -- the goal was just his third point.
