NHL Network presents: Game 3 2011 ECQF: Penguins vs. Lightning
Kennedy's third-period goal gives Pens 2-1 series lead
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.


This back-and-forth tilt included a little bit of everything, which set the tone for the remainder of the series.

The Penguins jumped out to an all-important early lead when Maxime Talbot rifled a wrist shot behind Dwayne Roloson just moments before Arron Asham followed up with his second goal of the series. Trailing 2-0, the Lightning played catch-up hockey the rest of the way, but broke through when Martin St. Louis delivered twice on the power play, including the game-tying goal early in the third period.

But moments after St. Louis gave the Lightning and the building new life, Tyler Kennedy cashed in on a rebound 31 seconds later, helping the Penguins win 3-2 and escape with a 2-1 series lead.
