NHL Network presents: Game 6 2011 ECQF: Penguins vs. Lightning
Lightning erase 3-1 series deficit, force Game 7 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.


The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't want to fly back to Pittsburgh for a seventh game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. They would've much rather preferred flying back with a 4-2 series victory and began Game 6 intent on making that happen.

Pascal Dupuis gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead in the first period, but the tide turned when Teddy Purcell and Sean Bergenheim gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead going into the third. Under four minutes in, Jordan Staal gave the Penguins life with his first of the series and the Penguins had all the momentum up to that point in the third period, but 1:07 later, Steve Downie regained the lead for the Lightning before Ryan Malone put an exclamation point on the game with a slap shot goal on a breakaway.

The series would then shift to Pittsburgh for a deciding Game 7.
