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.


The Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning opened Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in front of a rambunctious crowd, as it was the first-ever playoff game in the new home of the Penguins, the Consol Energy Center.

After withstanding a first-period Lightning surge, in which Marc-Andre Fleury shined -- he stopped all 14 shots he faced -- the Penguins tilted the ice for the final 40 minutes of play. Despite a combined 49 shots thrown on net for both clubs, the score remained knotted up, 0-0, going into the final period, but the Penguins wasted little time to change that.

Alex Kovalev and Arron Asham scored 18 seconds apart to help the Penguins take a commanding 2-0 lead. With Fleury continuing his solid play between the pipes, the Penguins held on to that lead and earned a cushion tally when Chris Kunitz collected an empty-net goal in the waning moments, which helped seal the deal as the home team took a 1-0 series lead.
