NHL Network presents: Game 5 2011 WCSF: Sharks vs. Red Wings
Howard backstops Wings to Game 5 win over Sharks in WCSF
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.


When the Detroit Red Wings allowed the San Jose Sharks to take a 2-0 lead in the second period of Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals, it looked like the end of the Red Wings’ season; however, netminder Jimmy Howard wasn’t ready to call it quits yet.


Howard turned aside 39 shots -- including 28 in the first two periods -- and as a result, the rest of the Red Wings pitched in during the third period with three consecutive goals to lift Detroit to a 4-3 victory and to send the series back to Detroit for a Game 6.
