NHL Network presents: Game 5 2011 ECQF: Penguins vs. Lightning
Lightning escape threat of elimination with Game 5 win in Pittsburgh.
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.


Trailing 3-1 in the series, the Tampa Bay Lightning had nothing to lose and played like it for 60 minutes of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

While the Pittsburgh Penguins had their share of scoring opportunities in the first period, they could not get a puck by Dwayne Roloson. The Lightning got on the board late in the first and would continue to strike throughout the game, as the Penguins found themselves down, 7-0, midway through the third.

Led by Steven Stamkos' three-point night, the Lightning would rely on whatever momentum gathered in Game 5 to carry over into a pivotal Game 6, trailing the series, 3-2.
